The Pride Shelter Trust is Africa’s first formal haven that provides short-term accommodation to the LGBTQI+ minority groups during crisis periods. The objectives of The Pride Shelter are to promote human dignity, self-respect and a sense of personal empowerment among members of the LGBTQI+ community. Throughout the years, staff, counsellors and volunteers have aided South African citizens, as well as legally confirmed refugees and/or asylum seekers in our short-term residential facility. Programmes at our shelter include the provision and facilitation of relevant self- and psychosocial support programmes to drive change on the African continent. As of 2021, the Pride Shelter Trust remains an active anchor for the LGBTQI+ community across provinces and is a dependable source of support to facilitate the recovery, support and integration of LGBTQI+ individuals into their respective society.
