Empowering Pacific Community Wellness


From offering one service to families since 2001, Penina has continued to expand its offering to all areas of wellness support which now also includes transitional and social housing.

Our mission is to ‘provide quality support that enhances holistic wellness’.

We are a Pacific led NGO (non-government organisation) and hold Faa Pasefika (Pacific Way) at the heart of our values. We understand that cultural integrity is the foundation on the journey to wellness for our communities most in need. Alongside this ethos, Penina is human focused; valuing people with love, compassion, care, and respect.

With holistic wellness at the core of our work, it is important that we work closely with both the individual, their wider whanau/aiga, communities, other social services and community organisations that support the journey to wellness for our clients.
