We believe that children should grow up in stable, safe, happy, strong and permanent family settings. We therefore strive to render child
protection services that will ensure that children can be placed in a permanent family environments within the shortest time possible. We
further strive towards keeping children in their families and work towards preventing removal of children.
The alternative care services we render include shorter term placements in temporary alternative care, reunification services, and foster care and specialist adoption services.
Our adoption services are based on many years of experience and all adoption social workers are registered with a specialty in adoption social work with the South African Council for Social Service professions.
Abba has a strong national presence in adoption services and services are provided from our Offices in Gauteng, Western Cape, Limpopo and North West Province.
Our Social Services program further entails promoting ethical adoption practices through research. We also continue to develop and roll out engagement programs which aims at raising awareness around child abandonment, unplanned crisis pregnancies. We have also developed a specialized adoption training program which are used nationally to train existing and emerging adoption social workers.
