Homes to Grow is the flagship project of the St Francis Trust. The Homes to Grow are foster homes for children who have been abandoned or orphaned as a result of neglect or of their parents contracting HIV/AIDS. Some of these children will also be living with HIV/AIDS. The foster homes operate according to a model provided by Home from Home. This model has proved to be highly successful in providing children with supportive family environments in which they can develop to their full potential. Children living in these homes are not faced with the stigma of being “institutional” children, and they reside in their own communities in which they are familiar and comfortable.
