In the Babies Home our heart is to provide a loving, caring, homely environment to children that have been abandoned, neglected or given up for adoption. We aim to address each child’s needs  and give them the best start in life! Over 140 children have been cared for in the Babies Home over the years and we typically have 12 – 15 children at any one time in the home.
