Who We Are

A Girl Called Hope is a non–profit organisation working with young women who face life–controlling issues and behaviour, such as abuse, addictions, depression, eating disorders, self harm and unplanned pregnancy. We exist to provide a future full of hope and potential to every young woman – to show them that they are valued, purposed and above all have a reason to live.

Our goal is to see young women restored to full health; to discover the purpose for their lives and bring value to their world as productive and thriving individuals.

"My eating disorder had robbed me of all but an ounce of hope that one day I might be free. I was welcomed with smiles and encouraging words, into the beautiful home. Straight away I felt as if I belonged."

Our Mission

Empowering young New Zealand women to reach their full potential through a holistic residential programme and community education initiatives based on Christian values.

The Vision

Restoring hope and transforming lives of young New Zealand women facing life controlling issues and behaviours.
