Cause profile

Home From Home provides supported and supervised community-based foster care for orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children through a network of small, family homes in disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

We believe that living in a small family unit with a dedicated foster mother or parents and no more than six children, is the next best place for children who can’t be cared for by their own biological families.

Our children grow up in their home communities and culture, where their home language is spoken. They have a foster family to support and care for them and we hope that one day they will either be reunited with their biological families, or failing that, that we have provided them with the necessary grounding to lead happy, successful lives.
