Care Haven Autumn Market

Care Haven Autumn Market is a community market that will be taking place 16, 17 and 18 May 2013

 at 188 Villiers Road, Walmer, Port Elizabeth!

Care Haven Psychiatric Centre is a Non-Profit Welfare Organisation. We accommodate 70 residents with a history of mental illness ranging from Bipolar mood disorder to various forms of depression and schizophrenia. Other services provided by this organisation include: psychological full time nursing care and Arts & Crafts Centre, where they are taught various skills, which serves to empower them an…d open doors for their future. The residents ages range from 18—54 and we do not discriminate between race, colour or creed. We are also BEE registered. The majority of the residents receive state disability grants. We are therefore dependant on the department of health for monthly subsidies, which we do not receive regularly. Due to financial constraints we will be hosting an autumn craft market to raise funds for the daily running of the centre and to maintain the quality of life of the people whom we serve.
