Joyville Children’s Home was set up in 1992 for street children gathered from the streets or markets. The children run away from their families for various reasons, a common factor being abuse – physical, mental and sexual.
The Salvation Army has taken the responsibility to ‘joyfully’ help these children with a holistic program that focuses on each child so their innate potential and personal skills can be developed. The children range from young children to teenagers. It is a residential home in a rural area so the children can learn agricultural skills such as raising pigs, tending rice crops, fish ponds, etc. to give them some chance of making a living in the future.

Term of Care:
It is possible for children to complete their schooling at Joyville as we provide long-term accommodation and care. In saying this, we are aware that there are circumstances when it is best for a child to move to another center or return to their family. The needs of the child will be considered and a decision will be individually based what will benefit their ongoing development. The maximum number of children the home care can accommodate at is 30 children.
