The Employment Journey
Homelessness is increasing. Long term rehabilitation is needed for a pathway to employment.
You, our community, donate clothing and purchase Mi-change Vouchers to give responsibly to the homeless. Vouchers provide food and clothing, and an entry point to change-readiness groups. Subscribe to Mi-change Vouchers and we’ll post them to you.
Thanks to this preparation and relationships of trust built, U-turn staff can encourage and screen people for drug and alcohol rehabilitation. We cover costs for transport and shelter during this time.
The U-turn work-readiness programme provides a work opportunity with on-the-job training, formal skills training, ongoing therapy and relapse prevention. Sponsor one lesson for R250 a month
When ready, participants graduate by securing an independent job in the open labour market. 6 months after graduating, over 80% of our graduates remain employed and sober. Contact us to hire a U-turn graduate
