We make provision for 30 men and 12 women.

People are admitted between 17:30 and 18:30. They must be sober and in possession of an ID document and must pay an admission fee of R7, or R12 if they have a job or a grant. We assist the oldest and poorest first and thereafter first come, first served. No bookings are accepted and everyone is treated exactly the same.

Paying admission is part of the rehabilitation process and helps people to accept responsibility for themselves. Those seeking admission to the Shelter must be sober and drug free and prepared to obey the rules of the Shelter. These rules include consideration of fellow residents and being prepared to help clean the Shelter. The rules also ensure that all residents are treated the same.

Members of the community are urged not to give beggars money – rather give them a ticket to the Shelter. These can be bought at the Shelter, Fidders in Andringa Street or the BP garage in Dorp Street. Alternatively, a note giving contact details and requesting that we admit a specific individual for the night will also be accepted. The entrance fee will then be collected from the person whose details are on the note. Instead of writing a note you can phone the Shelter.

Die doel van die reëls van die Stellenbosch Nagskuiling is om die goeie bestuur van die skuiling tot voordeel van beide ons personeellede en ons kliënte te verseker. Ons reëls vereis dat ons kliënte hul medemens in ag neem en dat hulle bereid moet wees om die Nagskuiling skoon en netjies te help hou. Die reëls verseker dat almal dieselfde behandel word.
