This year has been hectic for New Hope SA. We've felt the immense weight of walking a road with men looking to move away from homelessness and into an independent life. For many it starts with overcoming a substance-use-disorder from heroin, tik, alcohol etc..but once that's accomplished it's an even harder step to overcome the trauma that is experienced from living on the street. We've mourned the death of a friend living on the street (the 3rd homeless person I know who's passed away living on the street/shelter). We've had someone in our program attempt to commit suicide as they did not want to go back to the streets. We've had relapses that were illogical and made no sense and we've had people move back to the street after being independent. Sometimes it honestly feels we take 1 step forward and 2 steps back.
I am looking for 10 people to give R500 per month for 6 months. If you feel you'd like to be part of that group of 10 then please message me. I know we can do it! You will receive a monthly update on how your money has been spent and the best news is that it 100% goes towards the beneficiaries in our program.

I would like to thank Andy Wonnacott, Grant Norman Maxwell, Michael Atmore, Devlin Tyler Quinn, Bradley Latré, Cameron Tunstall Chaplin, Liz Wonnacott, Leila Bolland and Oliver Slingers for their support on the board.
