The First Community Resource Centre NPC is an independent non-profit company [Section 10]. The company has been established in Hanover Park, one of the outlying districts of the Cape flats in Cape Town. Our hours of operation are from Mondays to Thursdays between 08:30 and 16:30, and on Fridays between 08:30 and 14:00, with 22 staff members organizing and handling daily activities.
We use funds, donations or equipment received from organisations and independent donors to support our mission to be of value to the Community of Hanover Park. Our overall goals for establishing this centre was to address the social ills and skills deficit that is common in our society and to teach our youth important skills that will empower them to manage themselves without having to revert to the usual paths of gangsterism or drug abuse.
The First Community Resource Centre NPC operates from its own building complex, (six offices, reception area, computer room, boardroom, small hall, fully fledge kitchen) which was sponsored by the Pentecostal Protestant Church. We further consider ourselves as a faith based organization that primarily focus on assisting our whole community, irrespective of age, religion or race, the best we can.
This FCRC was started with the intention of poverty alleviation and with the objective of providing counseling targeted at members of the community, youth influenced by gangsterism and drugs as well as abused and neglected children.
We don’t want to be seen as a quick solution to some of the problems in our community, but as a means to a greater end, that is, serving as an elevating influence to encourage people to also uplift and develop themselves.
