Who are we
Society of St.Vincent de Paul in Kajang set up this home. It is registered with the Social Welfare Department. It serves as a home for underprivileged children. Since its inception, over 100 children have resided in the home. At present there are 39 children at the Home; age four to 18.
The home’s main aim is to provide these underprivileged children with proper nutrition, care, education, a safe place to stay, other basic needs and most of all, love. It is hoped that the efforts of the home will be able to help the children to become useful citizens in society.
The home is managed by nine committee members, all of whom work on a voluntary basis. The day-to-day administration is handled by a full-time House Administrator and three House Mothers.
The home owns a single-storey bungalow house with five rooms in Kajang which is partly financed by a bank loan. It also rents on a long-term basis, a single-storey terrace house nearby which is used as a boys’ wing. It has been renovated to make space for a large study hall.
Rumah Keluarga Kami depends entirely on public donations for its operating costs.The expenses consist mainly of staff salaries, tuition fees, utility bills, marketing, sundry provision, stationery, pocket money for the children as well as travelling expenses. Besides the continuous appeal to the public for help in funds, fund-raising events such as an Annual Dinner and Dance and also a Charity Golf Tournament are organised yearly.
They need volunteers to provide extra revision classes to the children. Lead in children’s activities (games, chores, learning new songs and new skills, etc.), Handicraft, Tuition, Counseling Session with the children. Please contact the Home directly.

Currently the Home is embarking on a building project(next door to their current building) and need help in all aspects. Please contact Mr Rajoo directly to find out how you can help. Thank you.
In early April 2008,the Home, under the guidance of the Society of St Vincent De Paul, embarked on another project, the Second Chance Community Home. The home is located at rented premises at No. 12, Jalan Pisang, Off Jalan Klang Lama, 58200, Kuala Lumpur. The objective of this home is to provide a half way home for ex-prisoners and men associated with drugs and alcohol abuse. The home will house these less fortunate individuals for about 3 to 6 months with the view to integrate them back into society. The average monthly expenditure for this project is about MYR 6,000.00.
