91 Martha Street Satellite House
It is a tremendous advantage for children in need of residential care to grow up in a satellite house. The satellite home has a permanent house father and mother to provide the children with the care and attention as in a healthy family. A small committee, consisting of local community volunteers, assist the house parents with the necessary support. This makes it possible for the child to grow up in a home that resembles a normal family environment. They can visit friends and be visited. They can socialize and be part of the local community. They form bonds with local families and have a network of friends once they leave the home.
At this house we are privileged to meet 10 boys aged 6 – 18.
Here we provide holistic care to boys who can benefit from family care, to develop them and to re-integrate them into society. They are also provided with appropriate educational opportunities so that they can reach their full potential. It is important to provide them with social skills, a network of friends in the local community, and support systems that will help them when they leave the home.
