Psycho-social care for our children
All our children have been afflicted by trauma in various forms. Our support therefore must extend beyond the physical to the child's emotional and psychological wellbeing.
Thandeka Zaca is our fulltime Social Worker who provides ongoing therapy and counsel within the homes. She spends one-on-one time with each child every month. Group sessions focus on key issues that promote resilience, including games, song, art and sport to encourage engagement, free speech and a sense of safety.
Thandeka consults regularly with the foster moms to gain a ‘temperature gauge’ on the emotional and psychological wellbeing of each child.
