The Objectives of the Organisation

– To provide accommodation for physically disabled persons in an environment conducive to maximal privacy and independence

– To provide, where necessary, additional facilities such as social services, provided by Social Workers from the Cape Town Association for Persons with Disabilities. reable@iafrica.com

– To promote the principal that rehabilitation of the disabled has not only a physical aspect but also a psychological one of restoring self-esteem through relative independence and a “normal” rather than institutional existence

– To collect funds to contribute to the expenses incurred by the house

– To educate and raise awareness, encourage a greater concern, understanding and awareness among the general public about disability
