Shelter For The Homeless

Shelter For The Homeless

Another “God” idea , we are very excited about this upcoming project.

There are so many homeless people in Durbanville and no where for them to go. In the past the people of Durbanville weren’t to keen on having such a shelter in our town, but off late it has really become a need

Our vision for the shelter is to provide these people with a place to come have a shower, get a meal & some clean clothes. We also envision teaching them skills & creating opportunities for them to earn their own income & give them back their dignity.

This shelter will be unlike other shelters, because here we will give them the opportunity to build up their self worth, and realize their full potential & God given destiny. We hope to take hands with the community & the churches in the community to make a real difference in these precious people’s lives.

Should you want to get involved in anyway please do not hesitate to contact our founder Marinda E Cornelius at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Our first step in building a relationship with these people is to host a Christmas Party for them on 16/12/09. We are going to put out tables & sun-umbrellas, put some braai-drums out & braai them a nice hot-dog or hamburger, cool drink & treats. We are going to have a nice jolly party for them. Give them each a clothing hamper and minister the Word of God to them. There is hope & His name is JESUS!

Again should you like to become involved with this great outreach please do not hesitate to contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Without your help this project is going to be so much harder to do!
