Here at The Safe House, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all our pursuits. We break the silence on abuse by empowering Survivors and Supporting Communities by Providing Abused Women and Children with a safe place to heal, rebuild and reconnect.

Our Story

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. THE SAFE HOUSE emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2015, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a solid foundation of support. Poverty and substance abuse are two of the most often quoted reasons for the very high incidence of domestic abuse in the far south. Now there is a modicum of hope for some. The Safe House – in an undisclosed area – has 10 beds available for women and their children who need a bolt-hole and safe place to recoup and reinvent their lives. Contact us to learn more and get involved.

From Idea to Reality: The Evolution of The Safe House
The Safe house is Kathy Cronje’s brainchild, but it has the support of the Provincial Department of Social Development (DSD). It has also captured the hearts of many people and organisations, locally and abroad. Everything in the home has been sponsored or donated and the gifts have softened the edges of what is always a deeply traumatic experience for the women and children needing help.
