In 2008, the Auckland Pasifika Providers Family Violence Prevention Network was established, in response to the Pasifika Providers Fono 2007 for Pacific Non-Profit organisations to come together to find a solution to Family Violence in Pacific families. Network members included 12 non-profit organisations, 11 of which were funded by Child Youth and Family Services. 2009 the Auckland Pacific Provider Family Violence Network was established and incorporated. In March 2010 the first staff member was hired, to provide training and support collaboration among network members. In July 2011, the name was shortened to Fonua Ola meaning Land, Birth, Beginning and Family.
