Hope Ithemba opened its doors on the 13th June 2008 with the purpose of coming alongside ladies in a crisis/unwanted pregnancy. We provide education and confidential assistance in a compassionate atmosphere. Due to the great need we have now started distributing parcels to assist women and their little ones. Discussions regarding Healthy Lifestyle Choices have become an important part of our services offered in order to equip our clients to choose the best option when it comes to sex, love and relationships.
A pregnancy will always change your life whether planned or unexpected and there can be many confusing feelings and issues which can be difficult to talk about. At Hope we offer a safe place to come and talk through these issues confidentially and we can equip and support you to make the right decisions or steps for your own unique situation.
Volunteers and Client advocates talk to you, perform limited ultrasounds, HIV testing, sort donated clothing into age appropriate sizes as well as organize the food pantry, amongst the many other duties which they perform.
All of our client advocates are highly trained in order to equip them in many elements including communication skills and crisis intervention.
Each client advocate is screened and trained in accredited courses. These client advocates and volunteers are part of a morning and afternoon rotation schedule each week.
Most of the ladies who come to Hope need some sort of crisis intervention. If you are able and willing to take a weekly time slot to assist us, please contact us for the next training course details.
