Personal message

Home of Hope is a registered non-profit children’s home in Table View, Cape Town.

At the moment we provide a home for more than 20 abused, abandoned and neglected children, most of whom have been with us since they were babies. Each child has their own story and their own obstacles, mental or physical, to overcome. 

With limited resources, we do our best to give them the love and care they deserve. We are the only family they know, and our sanctuary is what they call ‘home’.

 

Keeping Hope Alive.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our organisation has been left without financial aid, forcing us to make use of our reserve funds which have now been depleted. 

At the end of September, we were unable to cover the salaries of our 32 loyal employees who put our children’s needs even above their own.

 Without funds for the next 3 months, we will once again be unable to pay salaries, as well as our water and electricity bills. 

For the first time in 14 years we face the harsh reality of having to close our doors.

Closing our doors would mean that our children will be separated and placed into overcrowded children’s homes across the Western Cape.

Without the infrastructure to accommodate their needs or the training to understand their daily struggles, we can’t imagine having to say goodbye to the children we have raised.

Without support we will also need to close our special needs school which employs dedicated teachers that are trained to educate our children.

We also cater to 14 other children from impoverished communities who would not otherwise have access to education.

Our children know what it feels like to be abandoned, not feeling like they belong or having a place to call their own. 

We have promised to protect them from harm and give them a loving home and the brightest possible future.

Please help us keep our promise by donating to our BackaBuddy campaign.

Home of Hope

Home of Hope Logo

Home of Hope was started in 2005, and we are an NPO that cares for abandoned and abused children and children with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD – permanent brain damage caused by pre-natal exposure to alcohol). We are a registered place of safety and we have 19 children in our long term community based foster care. 

The organisation also caters for the special educational needs of children suffering from FAS (Foetal Alcohol Syndrome) and neurological challenges, in our Amathemba Learning Centre. There are currently 37 children at our Amathemba Learning Centre.
