The name, Ember, signifies our determination to support those whose fire is burning low, never giving up hope that their flame can be rekindled until it glows warm and bright.
Our kaupapa, Korowai Takitini, meaning the cloak of many parts, reflects the wrap-around nature of our services.
Ember – Korowai Takitini has been established through the merger of two leading services, Connect Supporting Recovery Inc. and Framework Trust.
