Charity Overview

Shalom house of refuge is registered NON Profit Organisation aimed to support abused woman and their children by so doing trying to eliminate the rate (number) of those abused, in-need and under-privileged people in South Africa, it is a shelter for abused women and their children situated in Johannesburg South to serve victims from Soweto, Turfontein, Rosettenville, Eldorado Park, Kliptown and else where should there be a need and available space.
The aim is to provide shelter for these vulnerable people so as to allow them time to heal and find their feet on the ground, empower them physically, mentally, spiritually, educationally and skills wise so as to enable them to go back to society as independent confident individuals who can help the society in identifying abuse before it escalates to crime.
We work with local schools for ABED and FET Colleges to empower our ladies educationally since many of them come to the shelter with little or no education at all.Shalom House of Refuge is also used to help people in temporary crisis cases, an example of this, is a case we had to shelter for a week a group of twenty students from the Free State who came to register at Johannesburg Central College but had no where to wait for the registration. They were sleeping in the street

We seek to bring as many of these vulnerable women and their children to a place where they can rebuild their self-respect, dignity, hope, trust and self-confidence to realise their potential and roles that they can play in society.
