The Nest Baby Village and Children’s Home was founded in 1997 by a woman seeking to help children. When these children mothers are arrested, typically for petty crimes, the children are left without care. Fortunately, when the women are released, they are reunited with their children. These women are allowed to stay at the Nest’s halfway house until they get back on their feet.
The Nest’s Baby Village takes in abandoned children under the age of 2 and cares for them until extended family can be found or an adoption can be arranged through social workers. Often the babies move to the Children’s Home when they are a bit older. Afterwards, they are provided academic education along with the rest of the children while awaiting their mothers’ release. Yet, in some cases, children come to The Nest with trauma from abusive backgrounds, and so they are provided counseling and support to be able to rebuild their lives and futures. Since TFI’s visit in 2012, TFI have been supporting The Nest’s efforts.
