Firefighter who became homeless gets place to live from Auckland charity

Mildred Armah Reporter from Central Leader

A former firefighter and surf lifesaving coach who became homeless after suffering from alcoholism and debilitating injuries now has a roof over his head thanks to HomeGround – Auckland City Mission’s 'home' for those in need.

Bryne Gregory​ first received care from the charity three years ago after an accident reduced his mobility and left him unable to work.

With no income he became homeless and found himself on the steps of Auckland City Mission.
