Thárros Child and Youth Care Centre to meet

2019-05-16 06:01

THE Thárros Child and Youth Care Centre at 705 Main Street in Hankey will have their general meeting at 14:30 on Monday, June 10.

Formerly known as the Hankey Children’s Home before it closed down in 2014, the safe haven is the first of its kind facility for abused and neglected children in the area.

Thárros serves as a safe haven for up to 30 children between the ages of two and eight in need of short-term emergency placements, while social workers investigate the best options for their long-term care.

The aim of Thárros is to offer a safe haven to those in crisis; providing hope, security and opportunity to girls and boys between the ages of two and eight who have been victims of abuse and neglect in the Kouga region.

To confirm attendance, contact Taise Sampson at 083 500 0910 by June 5.
