Heartlands Baby Sanctuary, based in Somerset West, Western Cape, is a temporary residential safe care facility for 25 children at any given time.
We provide individual specialised care and support to children in desperate need of care and protection from birth to 6 years. Children are placed with a valid court order from the Children’s Court.
After the Children’s Court proceedings are finalised, they are either reunited with their parents or family members, placed in foster care, transferred to other long-term facilities or adopted. We strive to develop the family bond by either visiting or being accommodated in the mother’s room. We educate them on how to nurture and safely care for their children, once reunited back at home.
Heartlands Baby Sanctuary is a registered Child and Youth Care Centre and Community Mental Health Facility.
