Welcome to Heatherdale Children’s Home, a Child and Youth Care Centre, based in Athlone, Cape Town, under the auspices of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa.
At Heatherdale, we provide a safe haven for children at risk – for those whose homes are beset with financial difficulties, drug/alcohol problems or physical abuse – and who have suffered emotional trauma as a result.
Our primary goal is to address the child’s trauma and equip him/her to return to his/her community and to a normal, healthy and independent life. We also assist families in addressing problems in the home, thereby helping them reunite with their children.
Feel free to look around our site. You’ll see that we are doing some fantastic work, and with fairly limited resources.
Imagine how much more we could do be doing with your assistance…
