Bayside Forever Home

Changing Lives One Child At A Time

Acres of Love is an established Republic of South Africa (RSA) non-profit organisation with an excellent eight year track record of providing the very highest quality of community-based, culturally appropriate and competent comprehensive care for abandoned and HIV/AIDS infants and children.

In December 2005 Bayside Church purchased a Forever Home and we care for up to 10 adopted children under the leadership of Earnest and Fentijie as house parents.  Every couple of years a team from Bayside Church travel to South Africa to spend time with the children.

We strive to ensure each child gets the care and assistance they need to develop soundly and to ensure that both their short-term and long-term needs will be met with the highest possible quality of service and health and residential care available. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and happy environment for all our infants and children so that they find the peace, security and support they need to develop to their fullest potential.

We are committed to giving each child a sound education, a sense that they have permanency and that they have a secure and stable future free of abuse and neglect. Our desired result for our HIV/AIDS infants and children is that they receive the best possible medical care to ensure that they have quality of life for as long as they live, and that they know that they are loved and cared for, and that they feel no stigma or rejection whatsoever as a result of their illness.

Acres of Love Forever Homes are situated in pristine neighbourhoods in Johannesburg , South Africa. They are located in good school districts and close to excellent private health care facilities.
