Huis Jabes, situated in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, provides a temporary home and shelter to victims of family violence for a period of time until they can function independently again.
Since its establishment in 2008, Huis Jabes has managed to accommodate and assist more than 400 individuals .
As the need for our facilities increases continually, Huis Jabes decided to rent a second house in 2011 to accommodate more women and children in need.
Victims of family violence are usually stripped from their sense of humanity, self-esteem and self-confidence.
Huis Jabes’ aim is to restore these women and children’s sense of self-worth by means of physical care i.e. finding jobs, provision of meals, shelter and medical care, counselling and general assistance in order to empower them to fend for themselves, stand on their own feet and to create a better future for themselves and their children.
