Welcome, Tharros Child & Youth Care Centre!


Welcome to our new Receiver Organisation, Tharros Child & Youth Care Centre! 

Tharros was founded in 2016 by Therese Sampson, a social worker, and advocate for children's rights.  Therese realized the need for such a center when volunteering at a project for children living on the street in Jeffreys Bay.  The lack of resources for placing children who have been neglected, abandoned or abused inspired her to open a home.  The initial couple of years have been spent renovating and furnishing the house, as well as preparing programs and administration systems.  The first children arrived in September 2017 and to date (June 2019) 26 babies and children have been cared for by Therese and the loving team who assist her.  Tharros is the first Child and Youth Care Centre to register in the Kouga, an area that includes towns and farming communities.
