Volunteer opportunities

U-Turn Vouchers for the homeless is an initiative that operates in the Western Cape in the Claremont, Rondebosch, Kenilworth and Wynberg areas.

 

The vouchers are given to the homeless on the street by the general public and this enables U-Turn to make contact with many homeless people and to help them initially with food and clothing. The goal more importantly is to engage with each person, get to know them and provide long term assistance.​

 

Places to purchase U-Turn Vouchers

 

  • U-Turn Head Office - Kenilworth
  • U-Turn Retail Stores: Philippi, Southfield, Wynberg & Claremont
  • Westerford Kwikspar - Campground Road, Rondebosch
  • Engen Garage - Claremont Main road
  • SuperSpar - Rosmead Avenue, Kenilworth
  • Engen Garage - Gabriel Road, Wynberg
  • Engen Garage - Ladies Mile Road

 

Homeless people can also earn meal vouchers:

 

This alternative system allows street people the opportunity to do work at the U-Turn service centre in exchange for U-Turn meal vouchers. This then means one can sponsor a number of U-Turn vouchers and we will make then available at the service centre for the homeless. This cash less system is very effective providing the homeless with what they need.

Secret to happiness

 

 

 

 

The resounding answer is yes.

 

Scientific research provides compelling data to support the anecdotal evidence that giving is a powerful pathway to personal growth and lasting happiness. Through fMRI technology, we now know that giving activates the same parts of the brain that are stimulated by food. Experiments show evidence that altruism is hardwired in the brain—and it's pleasurable. Helping others may just be the secret to living a life that is not only happier but also healthier, wealthier, more productive, and meaningful.
