A Rotorua man's charitable trust is renting motels to house people after the Covid-19 pandemic forced him to shut his shelters for the homeless.

Tiny Deane, who is well-known in the city, says providing a roof for people from all walks of life isn't always easy but they've coped well.

He and his organisation are working towards getting people into permanent homes.
