Current Location of GCC and Service Catchment Area

Grace Community Centre is situated in Berea, Johannesburg, where most of our services and programmes are currently being implemented.

Our service catchment areas are: Berea, Yeoville, Bellevue East, Bez Valley, Bertrams, Hillbrow and Troyville. These areas are underserved and predominantly occupied by black communities.

For many, the basic, day-to-day existence is a struggle, poverty, HIV/AIDS and Gender Based Violence is on the rise, leaving a multitude of challenges such as teenage-headed homes, teenage pregnancies, human trafficking, orphans, broken families and many more challenges.
