Based in Heideveld on the Cape Flats in Cape Town, Arise is uniquely positioned to impact existing families in resource-poor communities and where this is not possible, to work city-wide to promote new families through adoption and foster care. Its Family Centre model is based around collaborative partnerships with community organisations, delivering a high-quality holistic service to families. Through therapeutic and psychosocial groups, a unique Family Conference Service that creates resilience in families, and both formal training and informal coaching of community lay counsellors, Arise serves the community on all levels.
