Homeless rehabilitation journey

Journey out of Homelessness

Every person experiencing homelessness needs access to an effective life change pathway. Over the last 25 years, we have crafted an innovative skills based programme to overcome homelessness, designed by a multidisciplinary team of Occupational Therapists, Social workers, homeless support workers, counsellors, trainers and life coaches.

Life Changing Impact

South Africans face one of the worst unemployment rates globally. Our youth are growing up in communities with limited opportunities for education and future employment, and many of our youth turn to gangs and addiction. This puts many on to the streets or at risk of homelessness.

Six months after graduating from the U-turn programme, we check in. Our graduates remain sober, employed and housed.

Stories of Change

From homelessness to hopefulness, these are the stories of change that we celebrate. Our champions at U-turn have overcome enormous odds, and have worked hard to change their lives..


“I was on the streets for 8 years. I felt like a worthless human being…Now I have a job and my family back”

 – Quintin, U-turn Champion
