Empowering parents, strengthening communities

Imagine a world where every parent is equipped with the knowledge to survive the parenting journey and thrive in it – this is the world we’re helping to create. We’ve partnered with Parenting Place, an extraordinary charity that has become the lifeline for New Zealand parents navigating the ups and downs of raising children. From its helpful courses to free resources and even a new podcast, Parenting Place is there to lend a hand whenever parents need it.

Going on three years now, every beam we place, every nail we drive, is done with the conviction that we’re building more than homes – we’re reinforcing the fabric of Kiwi family life.  

A vision for modern parenting

Our contributions fuel Parenting Place’s transformative online course library, a trove of wisdom and practical advice for today’s dynamic parenting landscape.

Dave Atkinson, the CEO of Parenting Place, says they feel fortunate to have Sentinel Homes in their corner:

“We are extremely grateful to Sentinel Homes for their ongoing support. These funds help Parenting Place provide courses to empower parents with tools and insights so they can feel less stressed, more confident and more able to enjoy being the parents of their awesome tamariki! It is a joy to work with a partner who is committed to not just building homes but supporting families to flourish across Aotearoa.”

Events led by Sentinel Homes

For us, it doesn’t stop with donations. Across New Zealand, our teams have been busy hosting events to promote and fundraise for Parenting Place. Here’s a recap from 2023:

The Gala Dinner in Auckland – over 70k raised

In November, our three Auckland franchisees hosted a Gala Dinner at the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron. They welcomed 250 trusted build partners for a night of elegance and giving. With delicious food and drinks flowing, the atmosphere was buzzing as guests vied for lots in a charity auction. Thanks to their incredible support, we raised over $70k on the night, with many guests committing to ongoing support for Parenting Place. It was a night filled with laughter, generosity and a shared commitment to making a difference in our community.

Parenting on Purpose event in Waikato

In Waikato, we hosted our incredibly popular “Parenting on Purpose” event for the second consecutive year. It was an evening brimming with practical wisdom and inspiration for parents from all walks of life. Our guest speakers shared their stories and insights, sparking meaningful conversations and connections among attendees. From laughter to ‘aha!’ moments, it was an event that left everyone feeling empowered and equipped to tackle parenting challenges.

Taranaki Parenting event

And, in August, our Taranaki team organised a wonderful event hosted by Pio Terei, who kept the atmosphere lively with his natural comedy and ability to connect with the crowd, while the speakers delivered practical and relatable advice, leaving every attendee with valuable tips and tricks to apply at home.

The event was a huge success, with 70 parents, teachers, principals, grandparents, children and youth workers in attendance. And we helped to raise money for Parenting Place and the local parenting hub that runs PP Toolbox courses.

Building brighter futures

Julia Kuriger from Sentinel Homes Taranaki speaks for the whole company when she says, “The valuable work they are doing with whānau across the motu is something we feel strongly responsible for.”

Together, we’re not just constructing homes – we’re creating a brighter tomorrow for families across New Zealand. So, join us on this journey as we continue to empower parents, strengthen communities, and make a positive impact, one home at a time.
