Cambridge Community House is a registered charity, promoting personal, family and community wellbeing in Cambridge, Waipā
We support the people of our Cambridge community. People like you.
Our support can include counselling, supporting your whānau, assisting with family harm incidents, budget advice and other community services.
That’s the big stuff. But, because we walk alongside the people of our community, we offer support for the small stuff too. We find school uniforms for your tamariki. We help you apply for jobs. We support you to meet immediate kai needs. We speak to other organisations on your behalf. We’re on your side.
Cambridge Community House is a safe, warm and supportive place to come for support. Our whare is welcoming, so you will be comfortable here. Through strong ties with people, their families and other organisations, we offer you understanding, encouragement and education.
We are friendly and professional, with everyone. No bias. No discrimination.

Our logo forms the shape of a leaf, representing growth. The top part of the leaf is the outline of Maungatautari and represents strength, while the vein of the leaf represents the Waikato River and spirituality. The Awa and Maunga emphasise our strong ties with Cambridge.
Our gorgeous gardens
Thank you to Linley Fife of Line&Design, who has put a lot of time and effort into our garden. We look forward to nurturing it, and watching it flourish, as we do our clients who walk through the doors at Cambridge Community House.
