Our focus is on Pacific families, to enable families to improve their health and wellbeing, and reach their full potential. Our business is: to deliver service provisions to Pacific families in the South Waikato region. The organisation is the only Pacific Organisation in the region that delivers health and social services to Pacific (and non-Pacific) families.

These service provisions include Well Child, Physical Activity, Nursing, Home visits and Sexual health education. Whanau Ora Programme is another service offered by the organisation. Through all its services, the organisation engages with over 2500 Pacific people including 270 Pacific families, and is well connected to Pacific Islands and mainstream churches.

The organisation has strong working relationships with key stakeholders such as Raukawa Charitable Trust, Waikato District Health Board, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, Oranga Tamariki, Sport Waikato, YMCA, Tokoroa Police, South Waikato District Council, Tokoroa Council of Social Services, Tokoroa Hospital, Tokoroa High School, Forest View High School, University of Waikato, University of Auckland, and others.
