Heatherdale Children’s Home

Heatherdale Children’s Home is based in Athlone, Cape Town, under the auspices of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa. Heatherdale provides a safe haven for children at risk – for those whose homes are beset with financial difficulties, drug/alcohol problems or physical abuse – and who have suffered emotional trauma as a result. Their primary goal is to address the child’s trauma and equip him/her to return to his/her community and to a normal, healthy and independent life. Heatherdale also assists families in addressing problems in the home, thereby helping them reunite with their children.
