Marsh Memorial Homes nurtures children and transforms lives, by providing short term care for children who have experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment. Our programmes strive to rehabilitate and re unite children with their families or communities of origin, having developed in them the skill necessary for them to develop into confident productive and responsible adults.
This work of transformation begins with Marsh Memorial Homes providing a safe, stable and loving environment for the children in our care. The environment coupled with an intentional life skills programme, along with multi-disciplinary therapeutic support and counselling aims to assist children to find healing, rebuild their self-respect and confidence thus ensuring that when they leave our care they are equipped to achieve their dreams.
All children in our care come to us via the children’s court system, the majority have families. Ultimately our goal is to see all the children happily reunited with their rehabilitated families. In order to achieve this we work in partnership with the Department of Social Development and a number of Welfare organisations who focus on assisting the families in their local communities and are committed to reuniting families if at all possible.
