About Us


Here we live to the fullest!


House Andrew Murray is a Dutch Reformed Church / United Reformed Church institution with a Christian-based world and life outlook on the caring and developing of 150 children in need. This is done through mentoring and couching of socially acceptable behaviour based on a religious, educational, physical, social and psychological process, executed by a multi-disciplinary team of experts. The children are equipped to skilfully manage the difficult tasks of life and to fulfil their duty as responsible and law-abiding citizens.


In terms of Regulation 75 (2) of the Children's Act 38 of 2005, programmes implemented at Child and Youth Care Centres must be approved by the Provincial Head of Social Development. The HOD has authorised the Director: Facility Management and Inspectorate, Ms L Goosen as a suitably qualified person to assess and approve the programmes of CYCC's in the Western Cape (refer to section 191 (4) (a) and (b)).
