Working with our partners, the Pietermaritzburg Mental Health Society, Climb Any Mountain is creating a unique, purpose-built residential facility that not only provides a safe supported living space for people with learning disability and mental illness, but also aids the development of social and life skills.

We have called the facility The Transitional Living Centre (TLC) as it aims to provide a stepping stone for individuals as they move from institutional to community-based care, having achieved their personal goals of attaining the life skills necessary to live independently.  Read More »
