Done! Expand the U-turn Southern Suburbs Service Centre

Serving more than 80 individuals on an average day, this is a very busy space, and in the past, on very busy days we had to turn people away because we physically cannot fit them into the building!  For years we harboured the dream to expand our service centre so we can serve more people at this facility.

At the start of 2018, we were very pleased when a Company called Edward Snell & Co graciously decided to help us undertake this project.  The directors soon appointed an architech, a builder and other specialists to convert an old derelict part of the building into usable space! Everyone contributed beautifully to this worthy project and after 3 months of construction, new floors, protection from the rain and improved access (new doors) to name but a few, the project was finally completed. We can now serve a lot more individuals at this centre.  Thank you Edward Snell and Co for making this possible and strengthening our hand to help homeless people leave the streets.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][carousel_slide id=’1897′][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1539611647957{padding-top: 50px !important;}”][vc_btn title=”Return to “Fund a Project“” style=”classic” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-chevron-circle-left” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fhomeless.org.za%2Ffund-innovative-opportunity%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
