Who are we

Shelter home for children, a registered welfare organization, was set up in June 1981. guided by the vision of giving children ‘at risk’ a childhood and future by protecting, guiding and healing them, and by building strong communities and loving families.

Our services

The Shelter Home for the Children also provides a variety of other services under their Community, Family and Communications Departments. For their Community Department, services are being provided to poor families, which include training to prevent child abuse, tuition given to the poor students, and talks are given to schools and other organisations. For the Family Service Department, face-to-face counselling sessions to teenagers and their families are being provided. For their Communications Department, the education of the public and staff development is essential in keeping abreast with the development in social work amongst children and their families.

Our aims
Shelter’s services and initiatives are aimed at:
– Providing care for abused, abandoned, neglected or at-risk children through our residential homes, counselling, therapy and other services
– Raising public awareness on child abuse/protection, parenting and youth issues, and equipping individuals with relevant skills to detect signs of abuse and to take action.

Shelter currently has 3 homes in and around Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur:
– shelter 1 – for children ages 4-12 years old
– shelter 2 – for teenage girls 13-18 years old
– shelter 3 – for teenage boys 13-18 years old
Presently, we have a total of 47 children in our three homes. Most of the children go to government schools whilst those who don’t, attend home-schooling or tuition studies in the homes.

2) Shelter also helps to run 5 refugee schools that cater to some 450 children from Myanmar, who are waiting to be repatriated together with their families under the UNHCR programme.

3) Shelter also conduct and do community projects whereby we provide food, clothing and aid to underprivileged families in and around KL, PJ and Selangor.
