The South African Children’s HomeThe first welfare institution established in South Africa
Children are the future of our nation and we are grateful that we can serve the children of Cape Town by providing a place where they can receive loving care and become well-adjusted, productive citizens of our country.
Our mission is to care for, nurture and develop children in need, in order for them to become balanced, well-adapted and independent adults.
We provide a loving, happy and secure home for boys and girls of all ages, race groups and denominations.
Children are Placed in our Care
The children are placed in our care strictly through the Children’s Court and are given three balanced meals each day, attend local schools and are provided with school uniforms, sports equipment and casual clothing.
They receive medical and dental attention as well as therapeutic and counseling services.
Individual Development Plan
An individual Development Plan is established for each child, according to their specific needs, that includes training in basic life skills, encouraging participation in sport and recreational activities, providing therapeutic services and promoting spiritual input and growth.
