Our mission is to offer unconditional love, dignity, and FAMILY to children orphaned in South Africa. We seek to solve the complex problems experienced by infants and children without families. The value of treating each child as we would our own is at the core of our work. Family Homes offer children, who were orphaned, families in individual homes, run by loving and committed full-time house parents and staff. Our work has resulted in the rescue of over 500 children who either reside in our Family Homes, have been adopted into legal and permanent families, or reunified with family. The word "orphan" no longer applies, because our children now belong in a long-term, stable, de facto family. While past experiences, trauma, neglect, and abuse will be a part of their story forever, their pasts do not define or limit who they can become. Our desire is to empower them to experience hope and a bright future.
