Setshabelo Family and Child Services (SFCS) was established in 2014 after engagement with the community about their needs. The research was done in collaboration with various stakeholders including the Department of Social Development (DSD),the municipality, schools, churches, community organisations and NGOs with the support of Bethany Christian Services.
The outcome of the study found a clear need for a designated child protection organisation capacitated to provide full Child Protection Services support of the local DSD office.
Collaborating with local churches, schools, community organisations, public and private business, we give out our intervention services to families. These include: gender-based violence services, family support services, youth programs, programs for me, foster care and adoption services. We also have a temporary place of safety for children who are in dire situations. These are all geared towards safe-guarding the interests of children and preserving families.
All these services we render in the township of Botshabelo, Free State in South Africa
These are some of our partners that we have been working with on a long term and short term basis. The list does not end here as we have so many more to the point of small businesses within the community. We would like to thank all who work with us and support us financially in reaching our goals.
