Home-Start SA based in Benoni offers support and friendship for Families. We are focused on early intervention, starting by connecting families to resources and helping them reach their full potential.
Home-Start South Africa has been supporting families in Benoni and Daveyton since 2001. At Home-Start South Africa we believe that every child deserves the best start in life. We also understand that raising children can be difficult under normal circumstances. However, when adversity strikes it can be very hard. Whether it is through death of a family member, divorce, illness, children with behavioural problems or a multitude of reasons it makes a difficult life even harder. This is when families need a little extra help to get their children off to a good start, hence our name, so we match experienced volunteers with families to offer help and support. Our volunteers are all extensively trained by Home Start in accordance with strict international standards.
Our support is totally confidential and free to the family. What we do will vary from family to family and from place to place, but generally we:
• Visit families in their own homes or they visit our drop in centre where applicable
• Reassure parents that their problems are not unique
• Encourage families to enjoy themselves together
• Build on parents’ own strengths
• Help out where and if possible
