The Gauteng Department of Social Development subsidises the Drop-in Centre by financing the following positions: a cook, 5 Extended Public Works Programme workers, 4 caregivers, one administrative assistant and one auxiliary social worker. This enables the organisation to more effectively serve the children and the community.The appointment of an auxiliary social worker provides a new dimension to the services at the organisation benefitting the children registered at the centre and their parents and other clients. The social worker undertakes community work, arranges for outreach actions and information sessions on relevant topics such as HIV/AIDS, child abuse and how to apply for grants and pensions. She also undertakes home visits. The caregivers and EPWP workers conduct home visits under her guidance in order to provide support for vulnerable families in the community.
