Shelter

Giving children a space to heal

The Cece Yara Child Advocacy Centre Shelter provides a safe environment for children between the age of 3 and 18 years who are survivors of sexual abuse and their non-offending family members where necessary for up to 8 weeks, giving the individuals or families enough time to heal and continue with life. The shelter provides a healthy environment where children who have suffered from sexual abuse and their non-offending family members, who remain at risk, can be accommodated temporarily while they are provided with legal, psycho-social, medical and emotional help and eventually re-integrated into the society.

Our shelter which can conveniently house 28 children at a time and consists of a sitting room, a dining room, a kitchen, two female dormitories, one male dormitory and a family room, ensures that every child has access to our services: psycho – social assessment, case management, group counselling session, interactive plays, supportive counselling, legal advocacy, food, clothing, referrals and supportive assistance from other agencies we are affiliated with. We also ensure that during their stay in the shelter, their education is not adversely affected.
