We provide victim empowerment services at three centres in our area, namely KOSH Crisis Centre in Jouberton, Klerksdorp, Tlokwe Crisis Centre in Potchefstroom and Kagakala One Stop Centre, Leeudoringstad.

We also manage a shelter for abused families, the Khuseleka One Stop Centre in Vryburg. Victims can stay for up to six months and learn various skills in fully equipped workshops. These skills include hairdressing, bead work, knitting, sewing, baking and cooking. There is also a computer room as well as a gymnasium and library where all the inhabitants can relax or exercise.

Our HCT team does on-site HIV counselling and testing for various government departments, e.g. DSD, Public Works, Education, and Correctional Services.

The Home Based Care counsellors do home visits and support clients who need to apply for documents.

They visit schools on a monthly basis and provide emotional support to orphans and vulnerable children. Local schools make use of our counselling skills by referring children to our offices.

Free condoms are available from our offices and we refer for HCT when commercial sex workers collect condoms.
