James House is a child and youth care center and established a non-profit organization that nurtures, supports, and educates children in need within the Hout Bay community. It began as a soup kitchen and a means of providing shelter and protection for children who had experienced abuse or displacement. James House, named after the very first boy that received support from the caregivers in 1986, has expanded exponentially, giving necessary support to the needy. Each of the organization’s essential programs caters to the specific needs of the residents, including therapy, youth development, family interventions, and community awareness campaigns. James House firmly believes in the importance of family preservation and that reunification work is fundamental in changing the lives of orphans and vulnerable youth.


We invite those who value this beautiful country and its people to join our cause, helping to support, protect and nurture it for generations to come.
