Based in the community of Heideveld in the Cape Flats, Cape Town, we see families crumbling under the weight of poverty, crime, social injustice and abuse. Arise aims to strengthen family units through various programmes. We work with both children and parents or caregivers to counsel, strengthen, and equip families so that they can be a place where children feel safe, loved, and find a sense of belonging.
Our Family Centre aims to preserve, strengthen and support families in resource-poor communities to build resiliency so that children and their families can overcome adversities and reach their full potential. We do this by providing therapeutic consultations and psychosocial groups through our award-winning family strengthening programmes.
Our Adoption Support Programmes work to build and strengthen new families for those children without families. We do this through innovative advocacy and professional post-placement family support.
In an attempt to increase our footprint and share our programmes, Arise offers Train-the-Trainer workshops, where we equip other professionals to run what we’ve developed in their own context and spheres.

If you’d like to make a once off contribution, or support us on a monthly basis, we’d greatly appreciate it.
We are always in need of volunteers for our Family Fun Days, holiday clubs, or even a pair of helping hands around the office. Contact us to see how you can help
