Give Mi-change Vouchers

Homeless in Cape Town

Mi-change vouchers are redeemed across the city at U-turn or MES Homeless Support Centers. Your voucher provides essential basic needs like a meal, shower, clothing or a bed in a safe space, where available. Individuals also get access to professonal support and rehabilitation services for a pathway out of homelessness.

Vouchers reduce cash on the streets and help to break the cycle of chronic homelessness.

Why ?

A 2019 study found it costs significantly more for someone to stay on the streets than to help them leave the streets.  Read the study >

When you give a voucher, you reduce cash on the streets and access to drugs. Most importantly, you provide essential basic needs along with support, rehabilitation and ultimately work opportunities.

A voucher equals hope for a future.

Where?

Individuals in need can redeem their vouchers at U-turn and MES Homeless Support Centres in Claremont, Muizenberg, Strand, Parow, Bellville and Durbanville.

Cost?

A pack contains 4 vouchers and costs R50. You can purchase online or pop into your nearest shop that stocks Mi-change vouchers.

The Mi-change voucher initiative is powered by U-turn in partnership with MES. Both organisations have used vouchers successfully to provide people with a pathway out of homelessness. The vouchers are avalable in Cape Town and Johannesburg and will soon be available in other areas of the country.
