Hohepa is a Registered Charitable Trust providing intellectual disability services based on the principles of Rudolf Steiner.
Our purpose is to establish and maintain homes, schools, organic farms and day services throughout New Zealand for the care, support and education of intellectually disabled young people and adults.
Hohepa's vision is to enable people with intellectual disabilities to develop to their fullest potential and have quality of life in a holistic caring environment. The vocational and personal development of each individual with special needs is our prime focus with curative education and social therapy principles fundamental to our work. Our approaches are based on an understanding of each individual's disability, needs, and potential for future growth.
Recognition and respect for the eternal in each human being, and the working of destiny underlies our professional and social life. Community health grows strong through interest, participation, respect, co-operation and mutual support among its members.
Commitment to achieving the highest standard in professional knowledge and service delivery guides our performance.
