Upon the first arrival at Noupoort, the resident is greeted by a Senior Staff member who welcomes the new resident and introduces them to the program. First, the resident’s person is searched thoroughly for any contraband. This is for the safety of the resident and all other members of our ministry. The resident is then explained the basic rules. These rules will include regulations which include; not walking alone, designated smoking areas, the leadership system, program times etc.
They are then introduced to the “House Father/Mother” who manages the hostel and will see to the needs and well-being of the resident. The resident is shown around the building. For the guys, it’s The Centre and for the ladies, The Ladies House. The resident is shown to their room and explained when and where to be punctual for Roll Call. At the resident’s first Role Call, the new arrival is given a warm welcome by the other residents.
