Charity profile

The Durbanville Children's Home opened its doors in 1883 and is celebrating 130 years of care to children in need in 2013. We have 144 children aged from 2 to 18 at our home and are a non-profit, church based residential care home who looks after children in need of care from all communities of the Cape Peninsula. We are recognised as a model for child and youth care in a therapeutic milieu.

The Children‘s Home receive 32% subsidy from the Government, therefore we are very dependent on local and foreign communities for funds and donations. Please have a look around at the programs we offer, the children who benefit from it and how you can get involved and make a difference in the life of a traumatised child.

To become involved, kindly attend our compulsory information session on the last Tuesday of every month, Jan-Oct, at 6h30 pm at the Children's Home. This is the best way to learn more about us and the ideal opportunity for you to ask any specific questions you may have.
