Family Strengthening Services

Arise offers Family Strengthening Services aimed 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.

Based in Heideveld on the Cape Flats, we are surrounded by communities that face many challenges. Poverty, lack of employment, poor quality education, drug and alcohol addiction, violence and gangsterism destroy local families. We refuse to accept that these common stories of failure are the only option, and we are committed to new stories of restored families, thriving children and transformation.

We create professionally taught and facilitated therapeutic and support groups for both children and adults to build resilience to overcome the adversities they face. Our Family Centre Model ensures that we walk a journey with each and every family that enters our doors through the various programmes and services that we offer.

The services we offer at our Family Centre are:

  • Individual consultations with a concerned family member
  • Family group meetings
  • Open parent support
  • Family Strengthening Services
  • Various programmes in schools
  • Home visits

Adoption Support Services
