Hope Corner Children’s Shelter is a ministry that is very dear to our hearts.
During the last year of Hope Corner’s existence, it has become more and more evident that our social welfare system is under immense stress, and our town’s chidren are in dire need of shelter, safety and provision. The children placed with us, come from various backgrounds and range between ages
0 months–12 years of age – some of our children are orphaned, taken away from unfit home situations, or sheltered from abusive circumstances.
Our children didn’t have a choice in their circumstances, but they are the ones suffering directly as a result of their circumstances. We cannot waiver in taking them in and giving them a home of safety. We are still in the process of establishing a full-functioning Children’s Home, but our immediate aim and focus is to provide them with a safe alternative that is as much of a home as we can currently make it. We are also home schooling the children who are scholastically behind their age group, in an attempt to get them educated, and eventually up to standard with their age group.
There is still a lot of work and finances needed to get our Children’s Home to where we want it to be. Currently our drop-off rate of children in need, are exceeding our space and resources. We’ve been blessed tremendously by our CCM Church Family, ranging from financial to emotional support. We believe that God supplies in all areas of need within Hope Corner, and we stand in awe of His goodness!

Due to the varying circumstances and sensitivity of individual cases, not all of our children are allowed to be photographed. At the time of these photos taken, we were housing 9 children – this number fluctuates according to the need of the welfare and the cases of the children. We are currently housing 5 children on a semi-permanent basis, and 2 children are in permanent care to us. Two babies out of our 9 children, are now in foster care with one of our CCM families who decided to adopt them. Their process is in full-swing and we are praying for favour!
