Welcome to Joya Homes...
Joya Homes is a registered Non Profit Company (NPC) with Public Benefit status (Section 18A).
We are a Christian organisation with a passion to provide much needed, holistic care for abandoned and vulnerable children in the Helderberg basin, situated in the Western Cape - South Africa.
The Joya Homes Vision and Mission
Joya Homes aim to provide a safe, loving home with support to orphaned and vulnerable children in the Helderberg basin (Strand, Western Cape). We dream of a future where these children can grow up in their own culture and community. A place where they can feel safe and receive love and care from a trained, screened and monitored caregiver.
We work to ensure that every child in our care has access to educational and therapeutic programmes to help them become healthy and balanced adults. Providing them with skills and growing abilities to flourish within their circumstances.
Our mission is to PROVIDE and SUPPORT community-based foster care for children in need by networking with like-minded organisations and implementing sustainable structures. We have a strong desire to do things correct and to sustain what was achieved.
In addition our programmes educate, motivate and equip the caregivers of these children.
Our Current Focus
HIGHLIGHT OF 2016/2017
With the generous assistance of Henley's International, Joya Homes and Educare Company bought our first property in Broadlands, Strand. We have the necessary structures and support in place to run our own foster home. With this home we will be able to influence the lives of six children direct.
South Africa needs more homes like these as the number of children in this position is conservatively close to 5million!
