Melrose Home aims to nurture a supportive home away from home environment for its residents, and has the capacity to provide quality residential care for 80 disadvantaged children and teenagers between the ages of 3 to 18 years.
The Home requires a monthly average of about $120,000 for its operations and about 40% of this cost is provided by Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.

Continued support from donors is needed to provide quality residential care and daily meals, therapeutic and developmental services, enrichment and recreational programmes, and facilities management for our residents.
