A world in which every child has a safe home and a loving family
At Home from Home, we believe strongly in the power of family.
Since 2005, our organisation has successfully provided supported, family-style foster care to orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children.
We have grown significantly over the years and now run 36 homes in the greater Western Cape region of South Africa. This translates into around 200 children receiving our care.
In South Africa, where the numbers of orphaned, abandoned and neglected children are staggering, it is crucial to tap into the natural resilience, hope and sense of community that exists. The African philosophy of Ubuntu, of being interconnected and sharing sense of compassion and community is at the core of our purpose in building loving families.
The success of our work has resulted in numerous organisations in South Africa using our Model of Care.
We value our family members which include staff, associates, supporters and our children, and the role that they play in making Home from Home a success. We show gratitude by acknowledging their hard work, sacrifices and commitment by thanking them in the most appropriate manner. We appreciate our donors and supporters and recognise the time it took and that someone had a choice – they didn’t have to do what they did for us. We show them this appreciation through thoughtful and personal communication.
As a non-profit organisation, we value accountability from an organisational level as well as an individual level. We accept full responsibility for our actions and decisions and make ourselves available to account for these decisions if called upon. We are transparent, upfront and honest with our donors, supporters, beneficiaries, partners, government and fellow team members. Our basic financial information and governance structure are open for public scrutiny.
