The Children’s Home also operated by The Nest is for children ranging between 2-17 yrs. old. They currently house and care for over 80 children, some who are committed into their care from the Children’s Court because their mother are imprisoned. Some who have been abandoned as babies grow up in The Nest until they can find them another home. The children all receive care and education regardless of how long they will be at the home. For some it will only be a few months until they are reunited with their mothers, while others will spend years there. Many of the children arrive severely traumatized along with suffering from separation anxiety from their mothers. Social workers and caring staff help the children and they are also able to visit their mothers regularly in prison to maintain the family bond. The Children’s Home receives a lot of volunteers to help with the everyday tasks, but is always in need of more help because the number of children is always increasing. They are in desperate need for sponsors for the children to help put them through school especially as they get older and outgrow the education offered at the children’s home. TFI first visited The Nest in 2012 and is proud to support them in all their work.
