Horizon House is a residential and sheltered-employment centre specialising in the holistic care of people with a primary intellectual disability.

Established in 1974, the centre is located on a smallholding on the slopes of Papegaaiberg Mountain on the outskirts of the Stellenbosch, Western Cape. The centre can house and care for 102 people. We provide employment to all the residents as well as to 35 day workers.

The residents need caring, growth, self-esteem, socialising and relationships. Like all of us, they too, have dreams of things they would like to do. But, being intellectually disabled, they are vulnerable and that is why they require a safe environment in which they can come into their own.

Based on their intellectual abilities and interests, the residents join one of ten work areas. This allows them to make a meaningful contribution through sewing, recycling, repair work, cooking, gardening or something else in a sheltered environment. At the same time, the work areas offer therapeutic value and all the benefits of a proper job – servitude, recognition, pride, self-esteem, companionship, quality of life and hope.

Holistic and client-centered service is provided by Horizon House’s staff members, instructors, medical staff and a social worker. We also take care of their recreational and spiritual needs as well as personal development. And we support their parents and families.

Horizon House is a non-profit company responsible for its own funding. In order to run a financially sustainable centre, we have to supplement our income with donations, sales, fundraising, events and bequests.
