Our mission

Atlantic Hope believes that every child should have the best possible start in life. We serve as an immediate and temporary safe haven for newborns and infants who have been abandoned, removed from their parents care, or are awaiting adoption.

We strive to take care of all their immediate needs, from feeding and bathing to nurture and shelter. We offer the maximum holistic care, attention and support that new babies require to develop a strong foundation of health, nourishment and space to thrive into happy little individuals.             

          Section 28, Bill of Rights, SA Constitution

'Every child has the right to family care or parental care, or to appropriate alternative care when removed from the family environment ... to basic nutrition, shelter, basic health care services and social services ... to be protected from maltreatment, neglect, abuse or degradation ...


A child's best interests are of paramount importance in every matter concerning the child.'
