Making A Difference One Child At A Time

Acres of Love is an established Republic of South Africa (RSA) non-profit organisation with an excellent 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 which cares for up to 10 adopted children under the leadership of house parents.  Children have often been abandoned or orphaned due to HIV/AIDS.

The Home strives to ensure each child gets the care and assistance they need to develop and to ensure that their needs will be met with the highest possible quality of service and health and residential care available. The goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and happy environment for children so that they find the peace, security and support they need to develop to their fullest potential.

The Bayside Forever Home is 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 is situated in pristine neighbourhoods in Johannesburg, South Africa. They are located in good school districts and close to excellent private health care facilities.
