Life Skills


Our Christian-based life-skills program consists of the following courses:

  • Agape foundation – a six week orientation (foundation) course for assessment
  • Soul Care School – a six week emotional restoration course dealing with denial, anger and rejection.

Life Skills

  • Electrical wiring Painting
  • Building Plumbing
  • Plastering Craft work
  • Numeracy Computer Skills
  • Literacy Gardening

All life-skill training is incorporated into daily living chores , providing for practical reality-based therapy.

Negotiations are currently underway with the Department of Labour to assist with subsidised and sponsored training projects. Clients move on with a solid foundation due to training they receive, and now lead stable lives within acceptable social standards. We have a small contingent of clients who hold down semi-permanent jobs, with limited long term offers, whilst still residing at The Ark. We find that previous employers will re-employ clients who have had relapses, knowing that they can rely on The Ark as a place of safety and sobriety.
