HOUSING

After successfully graduating from the rehabilitation programme, former street children who cannot, for various reasons, be re-united with their family,  are placed in the care of an I Care family home in Lower Illovo on the KZN South Coast. Elements of the Khuthaza programme are reinforced in the homes. Each house accommodates 6 children, and is run by a house parent. The houses run like a regular home, whereby children need to learn to get along with their “siblings” and their days consist of everyday routines. The children attend school in the mornings, and their afternoons are filled with extra mural activities, such as swimming, soccer, art, surfing and tennis. The children attend Youth Group at Church on a Friday evening, and the whole “family” goes to the Sunday Service. While their children are at school, the house parents spend time back at the rehabilitation centre, getting to know the other children who will soon be graduating from rehabilitation and living with them. These visits facilitate smooth integration of the “new” children when they move into the houses. The children from the houses also interact with the children from the rehabilitation centre, either playing a friendly soccer match together or going to the beach for the day on the weekends.
