Good homes
for people
who need them



CORT Community Housing (Community of Refuge Trust) is a registered community housing provider in Auckland.



CORT Community Housing now has more than 230 one, two and three bedroom units which are homes for over 300 people. CORT owns over 60% of these properties and manages the rest on behalf of private property owners. To provide more homes we are building more houses and will continue to partner with property owners. 


CORT Community housing aims to create great places to live; promoting the well-being of individuals and neighbourhoods. We do this by remaining engaged with our tenants, using community focussed planning and design, and employing people-centred tenancy and property management services.


As good and affordable housing is at the heart of what we do, CORT aims to play a strong role in advocating for a strong Community Housing Sector and for improved housing outcomes for all Aucklanders. 



We recognise that our tenants are our greatest asset. Building a successful tenant-landlord relationship involves goodwill from both sides.

For us, this means we make sure your home is well maintained and is a safe and secure place to live. For you, it means taking good care of your home and being a considerate and helpful neighbour.

Our Tenants section will help you with any questions you may have about your tenancy and our services.


Community Housing

We believe a strong community housing sector provides New Zealanders with a wider range of safe, decent and affordable housing.

The Community Housing sector provides an alternative to public housing and private housing in the open market.

We offer affordable rental accommodation to individuals and small families on very low incomes.
