Host a Child


Some of our children have an extended family to show them love and affection, but we have many children who have nowhere to go.

If you are able to provide individual love, care and kindness to a child, we INVITE you to apply to host one or more of our children.

Being a HOST means that you will dedicate your time, care and love to a child. You will be able to visit the child, or take them out for a day and even during school holidays.

St Monica’s Children’s Home Needs You!!

We care for 84 adorable children. Girls are aged 3-18 years old and boys 3- 12 years old.

Our children come to us for very different reasons some are abused, neglected, or orphaned.
