This is Taylor, she’s a friend (kinda). We meet some days at the lower end of Queens St Auckland. I bought her breakfast once, buy her a drink and give some change occasionally when I see her.
Taylor told me she’s been living on the streets since she was 16 and has been working with a social welfare / social group and would like to have a normal life… I’d like to help and need your help to do so.
Taylor needs dental work to fix broken teeth and help her confidence to get off the streets. At least one of these was broken since we first meet, she tells me she was punched trying to protect the money in her cup.
I’ve organised with a city dentist to get a check-up but expect it will cost $2,000 to $3,000 to the broken teeth and many years of damage.
Taylor is homeless, she needs dental work to fix broken teeth and help her confidence to get off the streets.
This won’t fix every problem Taylor is faced with, however, she said it will help her confidence.
