360 Storage Solutions is aware of the importance for business to contribute to just causes in their community. The first project of many to come is to provide financial and material support to the "Place of Hope", a centre that supports abused women and children. Many women coming out of abusive relationships find themselves on the street and Place of Hope provides a safe haven for them to get back on their feet, including training to improve employment opportunities.
The women are allowed to stay for approximately 6 months and during this time they participate in a program which includes counselling, life skills, job skills and other enabling activities. The aim of the program is to empower the women so that they can become emotionally and economically independent and be re-integrated into society to live a meaningful life in peace and dignity.
They also provide day-care facilities for the 5-years-and-under age group while the older children are placed in schools in the area. At present they have 34 women and 46 children in their care. They are completely non-discriminatory and have women from all sectors of society there.
Place of Hope receives no Government funding and relies entirely on donations.
360 Storage Solutions have been able to donate much needed building materials to assist "Place of Hope" to keep their building fit for purpose and will continue to assist them with various maintenance and skills development initiatives.
