Durban Children’s Home

The Durban Children’s Home is a Non-Government Organisation. It was established in 1905 by a group of concerned men and women who saw the need to provide substitute care to orphans, destitute children and children with parents who were unable to care for them. In the past, the organisation provided custodial care to these children. When this method of child care became outdated the organisation was challenged to adjust its programmes in order to meet the requirements of the transformation welfare policy in South Africa. This has ensured that the children, youth and their families referred to our programme receive an effective, efficient and relevant service. – www.dch.org.za
