Whenever we want to change anything, put right what's wrong, or make something happen, the energy to do that comes from inside. Deep inside. Where each of us says 'because that's who I am, because I am me." In short, if we want change, we first have to be the change that we want.
Which is why, after 21 years, Mangere East Family Service Centre changed its name to ME Family Services. Each of us at ME believes in the power of local community, in the people that make Mangere and Otahuhu so special and give it a collective strength to achieve anything it wants - especially when the ME that's inside each of us is prepared to make it happen.
ME is about working together to realise the ambitions of Mangere and Otahuhu's individuals, families and communities. Each of us at ME is here for everyone who lives in Mangere and Otahuhu and who wants to grow and make a difference.
