Why building trust takes time
We're all on a different journey – and that's okay.
Each person who walks through our doors at Hutt St Centre has a different story to tell, but sadly there are some common experiences.
Three out of every four people who come to us for support have survived abuse or trauma. And more than half have experienced further violence on the streets.
That’s why it’s no surprise that rebuilding trust and confidence takes time. Everyone is doing their best with the burden they’re carrying.
Be kind to yourself and each other. You are helping to lighten that load just by walking alongside them.
