The Somerset West Family shelter was founded on the 6th April as a result of Covid-19. This new shelter offers a safe and catered for space to families that were homeless at the time of lockdown and going forward. This was and continues to be the first and only family shelter in the Western Cape.
16 families and vulnerable adults were invited in. Lockdown gave myself, the management team and the families a rare space to get to know each other, share life stories and create lasting bonds.
