The Habitat Curtain Bank provides low income Auckland individuals and whanau with free curtains for their home. 

Research shows that well fitted curtains are effective at reducing heat loss.  This not only helps keep a home warm and healthy, but also greatly helps with reducing energy bills. 

Many families, particularly living in rental properties cannot afford to buy good quality curtains. The Habitat Curtain Bank exists to help support these families.

If you have a community services card or a child that has been hospitalised with respiratory illnesses, Habitat may be able to help. Please contact us.
