“Community Cohesion renders a vast range of services in the area and they are experts with regards to the culture prevalent in the Houtbay community.
“Community Cohesion is our key referral partner. They are always available to us, even after hours. Besides assisting our clients with numerous practical and psycho-social needs, they de-brief my team of substance abuse counsellors on a monthly basis meaning my team remains strong and are able to do their jobs. The one on one sessions with my counsellors also adds to this. I know I can call on Bronwyn or anyone in her team anytime and they will assist, professionally and in the best interests of the clients”
Zulpha October, Programme Director, HB CARES outpatient substance abuse facility.
Upon evaluating the first cluster of 8 sessions facilitated by Community Cohesion, the Principal of Sentinel Primary could clearly indicate a marked decline in the amount of times that the majority of the participants were seen at the office for unacceptable behaviour since the inception of the programme. While this is only the first cluster of many to follow, it is clear that Community Cohesion is rendering a service of high standards in the Houtbay area.”

“We would like to hereby express our heartfelt appreciation of your significant contribution to the success of our Youth Substance Abuse Workshop.
The manner in which you performed your task as our Keynote Speaker at this event was indeed highly appreciated. Your ability to communicate with the youths present was dynamic to say the least. We are assured that your interaction will leave a lasting impression and your passion and dedication to serving the community at large was indeed impressive.
The participants were unanimous in their praise of the vibrant “Speaker” who with her extensive credentials could still connect with them and identify with their plight as underprivileged youth, who, faced with the scourges of an impoverished community and plagued by Drug Addiction & Violent Crime had been given a lifeline.”
