Charity: BETH URIEL IN SALT RIVER:

With a deep belief in the transforming power of God, Beth Uriel, “House of Light”, aims to provide young men from impoverished communities the chance to pursue meaningful, independent lives through a supportive living environment, connections to educational opportunities, positive social alternatives, and life skill training.

Statistics show that youth (age 18 to 35) make up over half of the population in the Western Cape.  Faced with enormous challenges around unemployment (well over 33%), low matric pass rates (only 1 in 2 learners make it to grade 12) and family dysfunction (fatherless or child headed homes), young men throughout the Cape are provided with very few opportunities that cultivate hope or any real sense of purpose. Our 24 bed independent living facility in Salt River aims to address the above issues by “raising young men to look up to”– making its resources available to previously disadvantaged young men between the ages of 18 and 24.

In an attempt to prepare previously disadvantaged young men for independent living Beth Uriel agrees to:

  • Provide quality residential care with 3 meals a day and other basic needs.
  • (Re)-integration in school and academic support
  • Engage in positive social alternatives including weekend and holiday programs
  • Encourage job readiness through life skills and part-time job experience.
  • Explore identity issues through peer support, group work and counselling

Beth Uriel Aims to accomplish our goal by:

  • Matching each family member with a “big brother” to serve as encouragement and accountability.
  • Providing each with a formal and informal part-time work opportunity.
  • Allowing each to lead their journey to independence through the use of an Independent Development Plan (IDP)
