Personal Home Visits
At the heart of everything Metro Kids does are the one-on-one relationships. At each programme Metro Kids operates, there are often hundreds of children present; therefore, personal weekly home visits help establish relationships.
Each week staff and volunteers faithfully visit the same children, getting to know their families and circumstances and thus building supportive relationships. This consistent care for children who often have emotional issues stemming from abandonment is a meaningful demonstration of the love Metro Kids has for the children and young people of Cape Town.
As the staff visits the families, they see firsthand what needs are present, and Metro Kids acts on this. The delivery of monthly food parcels play a large part in the role of home visits.
