Logo for Orange Sky New Zealand Orange Sky New Zealand

Orange Sky is a not-for-profit organisation providing people experiencing homelessness with access to free laundry services, warm showers and genuine, non-judgmental conversation, across New Zealand. Our mission is to positively connect communities by providing a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who are often ignored or feel disconnected from their community. We currently operate four services in New Zealand. Our first service was launched in Auckland in October 2018, followed by a second one in Wellington a year later in October 2019! A second van in Auckland launched in November 2021. In May 2022, we proudly launched our first service on the South Island, in Christchurch. Each week, more than 200 volunteers give their time to help positively connect some of the 41,000 New Zealanders doing it tough. We want to make sure that everyone has access to free laundry and shower services – but most importantly – the opportunity to connect and feel welcome.

Orange Sky Auckland General Volunteer

One of the most important jobs at Orange Sky – to connect with our friends through genuine and non-judgemental conversation. It might sound simple, but we’ve seen first-hand how a positive connection can impact a person’s life.
