Association for Persons with Disabilities Free State
About The APD Free State
The Association for Persons with Disabilities Free State has been in existence from 1939.
The Organization was originally called Cripple Care Society and had changed to the Association for Persons with Physical Disabilities Free State.
In 1996 the name changed to the Association for Persons with Disabilities and the DEAF – Free State. During 2006 the name changed to the current name.
The APD Free State delivers services mainly to persons with physical disabilities and multiple disabilities.
Jean Webber Home is a unique residential empowerment facility for persons with severe physical disabilities. This facility provides a home for 37 people who need physical support for most essential activities of daily living.
The demographics of the residents do not only cover Mangaung but the entire Free State Province. We strongly depend on donations and the goodwill to meet our budget.
One of the exciting new ways to generate an income is the opening of our Goodwill Store where the public can donate items and everybody can buy a bargain. We firmly believe that the best way to survive is to invest in sustainable projects like this.
