Old Boys and Girls reunite
We recently hosted a support group for children who have left JCH, giving them the opportunity to renew contact with their old friends and share their stories.
Over a delicious meal, our old boys and girls chatted about their lives since leaving the Home.
“The greatest lesson I have learned since entering the world as an adult,” said one young man, “is that you have to take responsibility for your own life. “You have choices – and it’s up to you to choose what to make of your life.”
Another said: “I walked kilometres from door to door asking for a job. I had to push for it, but I got a job in the end. It’s all about never giving up!”
Many of the youngsters expressed their gratitude to JCH for all the years of support and care they enjoyed here. Thank you for helping to make these good memories possible.[ Posted 24 July 2018 ]
