The Homestead Projects for Street Children

About Us

The Homestead Projects for Street Children is a legally registered Non-Profit Organization (NPO 003-217) and a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 18/11/13/1038), it was established in 1982 and has developed into a comprehensive response to the plight of children living, working and begging on the streets of Cape Town.  The Homestead provides residential care to 90 street children each night, helps over 160 street children a year, and works weekly with 200 chronically neglected, abused and street-vulnerable children in street children communities of origin. The Homestead mandate is “To get and keep children off the street and to help Street Children reconstruct their shattered lives”.

Homestead projects include: the Homestead Intake Centre in Khayelitsha, a therapeutic residential care facility stabilising 65 street children at a time; the Homestead “Launch Pad” residential centre in Woodstock that helps 25 young men prepare for a successful future away from street life;  and the Homestead   Early Intervention projects in Manenberg, Valhalla Park and Khayelitsha that reduce the vulnerability and plight of chronically neglected and abused boys and girls to street life.

To date we have reduced the number of children living on the streets of Cape Town, down by 90% since 2000, and that we continue to turn the constant flood of children coming onto the street away from street life.
