The Jones Safe House, near Kommetjie is a registered non-profit organization that takes on abused, abandoned, and neglected children and abused/addicted mothers.
The founders, Donovan and Bernadette Jones, together with their family, provide a stable, loving home where healing can begin and these at-risk children, and their mothers, can grow and flourish and, if at all possible, be safely re-integrated into their families and society.
Everyone involved in the Safe House, including Bernie and Donovan, do so for absolutely no remuneration.
This place really is a labour of love for everyone concerned. Additional support is provided through a magnificent team of volunteers whom the Safe House can contact when needs arise, including doctors, lawyers, social services and educational support.
The Executive Committee consists of 8 dedicated volunteers who meet regularly to assist in the overall management of the Safe House and its budget.
The Fundraising Committee consists of professional, enthusiastic individuals who volunteer their time to find new and ingenious ways in which to fund the Safe House operations.
