Shelter, care, and empowerment of destitute, abused and disadvantaged mothers and their children.
We are motivated by the principle of empowerment and do our best to enable disadvantaged and distressed women and their children to find relief, support and a chance to become independent, confident and self-sufficient.
St. Anne's Homes is a non-government organization under the patronage of the Archbishop of the Church of the Province of South Africa.
There are nine staff members and a Management Committee elected because of their ability, involvement and positive contribution.
We are situated in Woodstock near Cape Town. We offer our services to destitute, abused, rejected and disadvantaged women and their children from throughout South Africa.
St. Anne's originated in 1904, when a group of people from the Anglican Church worked together to obtain a house for any women or girl in need. The demand grew and later larger, more suitable premises were required. Thus a new home on the same site in Chapel Street, Woodstock was erected to accommodate 25 women.
