    A lot of the people on the street have drug alcohol and psychological problems it's true. Some maybe are freeloaders. I don't think we should throw them on the scrap heap.

    Auckland City Mission helps all sorts of people not just the homeless.

    Drugs and alcohol are a means of escape for many reasons for a lot of these guys, do i think it's okay? No of course not but do i condemn them as deadbeats and bottomfeeders because of it? Absolutely not, they just need help. And these organisations aim to do that, when they're ready.

    While I understand the thoughts behind knocking those who need help, having in my teenage years eaten a few meals at such places(and those meals being the best nutrition I had in that period) and had them put me on to other help that I much needed you will never hear me talk I'll of such places. I doubt many people who know me now would ever guess that stage of my life had happened

    Much kudos to you Angus, if while your out of work you would like/need help with transport costs to be able to cook at a "soup kitchen" then let me know and I'll sort you out

    @Angus at present, how long are you planning to stay in Auckland if you don't find a paying job?
    Ie I'd like to have a coffee and chat with you, but I won't be back for 2 weeks.

    Soup kitchens/food services in auckland?

    I'll be here for at least another 2 weeks, probably longer as i'm enjoying time away from my god awful flatmates so much haha. Coffee sounds good.
    Even if I don't find work This time around I'll be back up very soon anyways, I've set aside money for the move and my uncle has offered me lodging in the realm of something I can afford. So either way we can definitely meet up when you're back.

    Angus....Give us a rundown of your own personal experiences.

    In the Wellington city area there seems to be a increase of beggers over the years.....Very sad to see people in those situations, but you have to wonder at tines.
