Residential Home


Donors are requested and encouraged to assist with the funding of this project to make this vision become a reality. Planning of the establishment of a Residential Home in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa, is underway. The organisation is planning to set up a home where approximately 5 to 8 autistic adults will reside, with support and care, as required. The residents will be encouraged to be active, engaged in occupation on a daily basis, to participate in activities within the home and to be as independent as possible.

Project Value

    • Residents, the beneficiaries of this service, will be offered opportunities to develop to their full potential.
  • Support families and parents by providing relief from the constant caring and managing of the adult with ASD
