The Pride Shelter Trust is a non-profit organisation raising funds for and managing a shelter offering short-term accommodation to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community of greater Cape Town and beyond during crisis periods in their lives.
We ideally would love volunteers to raise money for us so that we can continue our work supporting LGBTI people in crisis.

The Pride Shelter aims to provide residents with a friendly, safe and nurturing environment in which to stay while they start to recover and find their feet again; to support residents by referring them to other services that they may need, including counselling, sexual health, mental health and immigration services; and to ensure that when residents eventually move on, they do so with a clear purpose and direction.
