The children range in age from 7 – 18yrs. (In some cases youngsters stay on beyond their nineteenth birthday in order to complete school, or to find employment or in cases of severe mental handicaps, to find adult care facilities.)
There are six houses for girls and four for boys.
Children from all races are cared for.
Children with similar trauma are grouped together in houses with a programme specifically developed for those children’s needs. Intensive therapeutic programmes are in place to assist the children to work through their problems.
