The Centre has been in existence since 1958 and is a project of Child Welfare Durban and District.
Lakehaven Child and Youth Care Centre is registered to cater for the needs of 60 children who are abused, neglected and abandoned between the ages of 6 years to 18 years. All our children are placed at the Centre through a court order.
Our aim is to provide children at risk with an environment that is stimulating, motivating and equip them with skills to become self-sufficient and positive leaders in the future.
We regard empowerment as the key to social and emotional well-being and development of children. This will enable them to have a sense of pride and dignity. Our challenges are securing a warm and loving family for our children and equipping them with skills.
We appeal to everyone, to assist us in meeting the needs of our children. Whether its purchasing some of the items on the list or making a financial contribution, we appreciated all you efforts.
