Cape Town, South Africa
Strategic Ministry Partnership:
Our work in Cape Town is in partnership with the Home from Home organization. We engage with them in developing relationships with the Foster Home Mums and the vulnerable children they care for.
HFH founders, Jane Payne and Pippa Shaper, envisioned a future where orphaned and vulnerable children of South Africa would not have to grow up in institutional children’s homes. They shared a belief that children should be able to grow up in their own communities, in small family homes, where they can feel safe, loved and secure.
We are a family of dedicated social workers, foster moms and support staff who are committed to loving, protecting and raising vulnerable children to become independent young adults.
We are a registered cluster foster scheme working together as a team, supporting each other to ensure our children receive the highest level of care with individual treatment plans, therapeutic intervention, tutoring and mentorship.
We aim to respond respectfully and with empathy to the challenging situations that can arise within foster families. We ask all of our foster mothers, associates and staff to model integrity and gratitude for our children so that they can grow up to become citizens we can all be proud of.
