Our Causes

We were founded to help people in need and our projects are at the core of what we do!

Shiloh House Crisis Centre for Women

Our Crisis Centre began in 2006 as a result of our 'Women of Worth' street ministries during which we came across so many abused women and children in great need of refuge. The Crisis Centre is a safe haven providing temporary relief until abused parties can be resettled sustainably. Beneficiaries are provided with accommodation, food, clothing & toiletries, counselling, a care plan – personal development, referrals to specialised / long term crisis centre's, drug and alcohol rehabilitation referrals, assistance with health needs, CV's, ID's, grants and job placements.

Women of Work Street Ministry

A team of our volunteers walk the streets every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday night from 7pm to 11pm, distributing reading material to educate and empower the ‘ladies of the night’. We also counsel and pray on sight or as requested. We offer accommodation at our Crisis Centre to those who have absolutely no one to turn to, but are willing to change. Our Crisis Centre has its own program to enrich and assist them.
