About us

The Johannesburg Children's Home is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 001-034) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 18/11/13/1111) which provides a safe refuge for 64 children of all races who have been found in need of care by the Children's Court.

Aged from 3 to 18 years, our children have suffered physical, sexual or emotional abuse, severe neglect or abandonment. Some are Aids orphans and/or are HIV positive. At JCH they start a new life, living in cottages of up to ten children under the loving eyes of trained Child Care Workers.

Although we receive a State subsidy for each child, it covers only about 11% of actual costs. If not for the generosity of the people of Johannesburg and further afield, we could not do the work we do.
