RE: Donation

Camp Joy was established in 2012 to meet the need for residential care of substance abusers and high risks individuals (gangsters) from the Cape Flats region of Cape Town.

The project is an extension of the First Community Resource Centre in Hanover Park, a non-profit company which also houses the CEASEFIRE program. CEASEFIRE is a gang violence intervention program from whom we draw a number of participants.

Camp Joy offers a six-week in-house programme, as well as an on-going live-work programme for the recovered participants who do not have suitable accommodation to return to.

While the organization has very distinctive Christian roots, all participants are welcomed irrespective of religion, racial or cultural creeds.

Apart from the daily life and job readiness classes, one-on-one counselling and group therapy is provided.

Extra mural activities include gardening, building maintenance and exercise classes.

Funding comes mostly from fund raising events by the local church congregation in Hanover Park, and occasionally from private donations.

We also rely on volunteers to add skills and value to our services.

We will appreciate any donation that would assist us in our attempts to recover our young men and women.
