♥ Children flourish in families ♥

Our Foster Journey

As the Schultz family, we have a motto that there is always room at our table for one or two more. We have a Foster home, a normal mum and dad blessed with extraordinary little humans. We invite you to follow our journey in "foster care".

"Forever Daddy"

    I am a Senior Draughtsman by trade with over 20 years experience. I specialize in emergency vehicle automotive designs. I have a great love for music, the African bushveld, nature and am a 4x4 enthusiast. I love to read and craft and am a true artist at heart. My best attribute is my loyalty and commitment to my family and especially my children. I am devoted, hardworking and hands on in every aspect of the running our home and raising the children. I love adventures, road trips, hobbies and camping. I have a big heart and believe in social justice for all. I am an advocate for foster care.

    "Forever Mommy"

      I obtained a Higher Diploma in Ministerial Training and Pastoral Care and Counselling. I then reinvented myself as a travel agent and lecturer after travelling the world as a young student. I started working remotely when we became parents in order to be hands on and available to the needs of the children. I am a committed, loving, nurturing wife and mother. My passion is social justice and helping those in need in our community. I enjoy working in the garden, DIY projects and planning events. I am an advocate for foster care and adoption.

      Supporting Our Community

      In spite of not being a registered charity, we have made it our mission to be involved in our local community. When we receive donations of food, clothes, toys or any baby or household items, we only take what we need and the rest goes to support mothers in the informal settlements, such as Diepkloof and Spruit as well as Olievenhoutbosch.

      Testimonials

      • A big thank you to Genevieve and Johan from Riaan and Lynette Engelbrecht for their incredibly support and love. Not only do they have a wonderful caring heart to provide a loving home for children who need it so desperately, but they have also reached out and supported others who are foster parents or who run places of Safety. Their hand is never short to assist in trying times. Since opening our home in Kempton Park to our first abandoned baby in November, this couple has truly blessed us regularly and enormously with donations. We deeply appreciate their friendship, their humanity and their respect for life. Be blessed🌹🙌

        Lynette Engelbrecht
      • As far back as I can remember all Genevieve ever wanted was a large brood of children, later a dream of an orphanage was added.
        Genevieve is finally pursuing her lifelong dream of having a home for abused and abandoned children. She waited many years and she finally found the right man Johann with the same heart who would share her dream.
        This couple as Foster Parents come highly recommended. It takes a special kind of person with a prepared heart to welcome, accept and embrace children from all walks of life as your own. This comes naturally to them, in fact their home with its play area and crafts and toys for all ages is an “institution”. Their children are well balanced and happy as they have parents with healthy boundaries but a bottomless reservoir of unconditional love and acceptance.
        May God Bless this lovely little Rainbow family!

      What is the difference between Foster Care and a Place of Safety?

      Foster Care

      If you would like to register as foster parents, you will need to be screened by a social worker (SW) in order to approve you as fit and proper to provide a stable and suitable home for a child in need of foster care.
      You will have to apply for police clearance (PC) and a form 30. Everyone over the age of 18 needs to apply.
      The term for placement is 2 years, but can be extended as deemed by the court.

      Place of Safety

      The same applies as for foster parents. Your SW will also need to apply for a Form 39 from Department Social Development (DSD). The term for placement is anything from 3 - 6 month ideally.
