Accomodation Information English Version


The Athalia Outreach has been established with the objective to address the ever–growing social problem of the lack of affordable accommodation for Christian senior citizens and disabled adults living on state grants or other inadequate grants. Furthermore, we envisage assisting needy young people and families until they can stand on their own feet, independently.


To create and perpetrate a safe, clean, tidy environment, where aged and disabled people can enjoy their golden years without financial stress.

To make available to young struggling people secure living conditions until they can become independent.

To bring about stability by means of promulgating and maintaining Christian principles.

To be involved with the larger community and reach out those who need help.


Athalia Outreach is was founded on 23 February, 2012 when a small group of senior citizens decided that they’d had   enough of being moved around. They wanted, indeed craved for permanent, safe accommodation, a haven where they could grow old gracefully and with dignity. The members of this group had been living under the auspices of another outreach organization, which had given them 24 hours notice that they wert to be re-distributed into other houses, due to downscaling.

The owner of the house in which they were staying felt empathy for their dilemma. After some discussions and negotiations between the owner’s wife, Annélize van der Walt and the disgruntled group of residents, a decision was made that the residents could stay on and continues with the commune. After a great deal of prayer and consultation with Mrs. Ans Coetzee (a retiree from a similar organization), Athalia Outreach was founded. With a growing need for social assistance, the downscaling of the other organization would quite obviously increase the need even more. Thus, the couple who owns the house is pleased that their property will continue to serve this need within the community.

This house has been secured by a long term lease contract, with the first option of a further lease, therefore ensuring permanence. Athalia Outreach is a non-profit organization striving to provide a permanent home for lesser privileged, needy people. The choice of the name “Athalia” was made meaningful in that it translates “God is praised”.

Galatians 6:9 :  Let us not become wary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
