Angela – Housing New Zealand Launchpad


Hi, I’m Angela, and I’m 52 years old. I live in Auckland. I own and operate Angels
Professional Grooming Centre. So we moved into a state house
when I was eight years old. We lived there up until I moved in with my husband when I was 18. I have no recollection
of having any friends before moving into Avondale. I was eight years old, I had
never been to a child’s party. I made my first friend then, when I was eight, her name was Tony. I’m still in contact with her today. You learn to trust after a while. As a child, you’re going,
things aren’t changing actually. This home is where my home
is and that doesn’t change. This friend is my friend,
and they are still my friend, and that didn’t change. The neighbours are still my
neighbours, and it didn’t change. To me, it is putting
people in the community in a house that they can afford, that they can have their
stability to build their life on. We have a grooming academy
where we teach people to groom. We have another parlour, The
Posh Pooch out in East Auckland. We are the franchisors for Jim’s Dog Wash, throughout the North Island. I am also the manager of
Groom Team New Zealand. I really feel that our
stability did start there. Shelter is not just going,
I didn’t get wet today. Shelter is the place that you
come home and you call home. It’s home everyday.
