SHELTER 1

Shelter 1 is a home for children from 4 to 12 years of age who have been abused, neglected, at-risk or abandoned by their families, parents or guardians. 

Most of our children here go to a Government school. Some, however, (those who are weak in their studies) go through a home schooling programme.

Our children are cared for by staff who work on a 24-hour shift, following a roster, providing rehabilitation and care for the children; an administrative officer who deals with the children's school matters, volunteers, visitors and children's events; a housekeeper/cook and a manager. We also have a team of very faithful and committed volunteers who assist us in tutoring our children.

Shelter 1 is located in Petaling Jaya. For further enquiries, please contact:

SHELTER 2

Shelter 2 is a home for teenage girls from 13 to 18 years. It is located in Kuala Lumpur.

Many of these girls are street children who got into trouble because of the lack of care and guidance from their families. However, we find that the girls seem to have an ability to cope with school work and are therefore given a chance to complete their education. The routine includes doing daily chores, such as cooking and cleaning their rooms and kitchen and attending tuition and computer studies. They are helped to be able to further their studies at various institutions after their SPM or STPM. Shelter 2 also conducts activities which can help the girls develop their independence equipping them with skills that can be used in society. We hope that these girls, given the right opportunities, can succeed in their future chosen fields of work.

SHELTER 3

Most of the teenage boys between the ages of 13 and 18 at Shelter 3 are struggling in their studies at school because of their backgrounds of abuse or neglect.


We have full-time staff to run the home on a shift basis to ensure the smooth running of the home. There are a good number of volunteers who help out faithfully on a regular basis. We greatly appreciate and value their time spent with our boys.

It has always been Shelter's hope to have a home of its own. In the past the children had to move from place to place each time the lease on the home expired. Children, especially those from difficult backgrounds, need stability and consistency in their lives. They need to be able to integrate and form good friendships with people in the neighbourhood and in their schools. Thus, Shelter decided to ensure a permanent home by purchasing a property although it would be a financial strain on Shelter.

In 2005, the dream of having our own home materialised and Shelter 3 finally moved to a permanent home in Section 8, Petaling Jaya. At this time we also combined Shelter 5 (teenage boys) and Shelter 3 so that there would be consistency in the way the boys were brought up.   [ view more photos of our homes here ]
