Children's Program

Children's program

As a registered Child And Youth Care Facility, we can accommodate up to 64 children. All children are placed with us by the courts through the Children’s Act 38 of 2005.

Some children are only placed with us for short periods as a means of protection in emergency situations, while others are placed with us for the longer term because of their special medical needs. Nazareth House is also able to provide specialist care for children with terminal illnesses and or severe chronic conditions as well as therapeutic activities by our full-time occupational therapist and specialised Social Workers.

Every child at some stage longs to find their roots, who they really are and who they belong to. We owe it to them to do all we can to help them find the answers. We believe that children of all abilities should grow up in a nurturing home environment. Our priority is always, wherever possible, stabilise and reunite these children with their families, through Family Reunification, or to place them in loving foster care.
