We believe that living in a small family unit of no more than six children with a dedicated foster mother or parents is the next best place for children who cannot be cared for by their biological families.
Our network of 36 quality foster homes spans 16 communities from Kayamandi to Khayelitsha, Masiphumelele to Zonnebloem and more. This means that we are able to care for over 200 children who would otherwise not experience family life.
We strongly believe that our registered Cluster Foster Care Scheme is the best setting for resilience and recovery for our children. The majority of our homes are linked to a community-based associate, which is either a local community or faith-based organization, who assist with the setting-up and running of the homes. These associations ensure community based support for the various homes and foster parents, meaning that the children are integrated into their local community. By working with our associates we are empowering them to care for their own children in need, whilst ensuring they have access to the expertise and resources required to provide a high level of care for their children.
In addition, there are ten homes across the Western and Eastern Cape which are run by our Affiliates. They use the Home from Home model of care, which at capacity provide homes for an additional 60 children. Home from Home consults to these organisations and assists them to implement our unique and successful model of care. We provide ongoing training, support, monitoring and evaluation.
