Providing unconditional loving support to children who have or have had a parent in prison, and their family, through volunteers. Children of prisoners are seven times more likely to offend themselves. The Families Commission is currently shining the light on these children as some of the most vulnerable in New Zealand. Somebody has to step up and make a difference in their lives … Is it going to be you?

Our vision is to make a positive, loving and long lasting impact in the lives of children who have or have had a parent in prison. We believe this can be achieved with the support of churches, community groups, and individuals who grasp the vision and join with us to help provide the various programmes and initiatives we offer.

Angel Tree Family Care offers year round support to children and caregivers, providing family support volunteers as well as funding necessary interventions, access to kids’ camps, weekend workshops, Christmas meals and events afternoons. Angel Tree Christmas nurtures the precious link between a prisoner and their children by providing nearly 4,000 Christmas Gifts to children every year from their incarcerated parent.

Volunteering with Angel Tree

Angel Tree helps children begin to heal the pain of being separated, and provides families an important connection with a community that can offer support and love during a time of isolation. We can’t do this alone, but together we can make a difference. Together we can be a “fence at the top of the cliff” for these children – our Angels, providing them with a different path to travel. Whatever your gifting, there is a place for you in this rewarding ministry in your local area. Everything and everyone can make a difference.

“Without PFNZ we would have been destitute and that would have meant losing our children and having their lives stuffed up……… I am so very thankful and words are not enough to express the difference this has made.”
