GIFT (Growth In Faith Together) is a not-for-profit organisation that works for the growth and development of people who have an intellectual disability.
Attention is given to all aspects of life. In addition to normal growth and development programmes for the intellectually disabled, GIFT also focuses on the spiritual dimension of life and active participation in Church life.
GIFT RESIDENTIAL SERVICE:
The service is contracted and funded by the Ministry of Health to supply accommodation, care and community support for people with an intellectual disability.
Currently GIFT operates two houses – Gift House and Sinclair House and is situated at 26 and 28 Telford Avenue, Mount Eden, Auckland.
The Residential Service provides short and long-term residential stays for adults with intellectual disabilities. There are facilities for up to 11 residents.
GIFT RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAMMES:
As part of the spiritual dimension of life, GIFT has special Religious Education Programmes on the First and Third Saturdays every month. The Programmes are open to Intellectually Disabled people from other residential care organisations or home care.
