Nehemiah Safe House is a loving home and family for children that are in need of care and protection, based in Monte Vista, Cape Town. The children that stay at Nehemiah Safe House will be loved and nurtured in a safe Godly and homely environment until such time they can be re-united with their family. Amy Vos, together with her husband Bronson are the founders of Nehemiah Safe House.
How Did It Start?
Amy Vos (Founder of Nehemiah Safe House) had identified the struggles that children and new moms that come from difficult backgrounds had to deal with. It was through this experience that her and her husband’s (Bronson) desire and passion to assist children in need was ignited.
Amy spent a fair amount of time attending courses through Agape in Cape Town who train and equip people to prepare them for the road ahead when fostering children. A short while after, Bronson and Amy registered with Social Development to start their journey. After meeting the requirements and waiting a short period they were blessed with their first foster child, in November 2014.
After spending time attending to their foster child’s needs they realised the importance of a good, safe home and family environment. They focused their attention on how they could be of assistance to children while maintaining a normal family life. The only way they could see it working was for them to open their doors to children in need and led to Amy registering as an non-profit organisation so that they comply with the law, and be a home to more children.
Vision for Nehemiah Safe House
The long-term vision of Nehemiah Safe House is to evolve into a registered “Child and Youth Care Center”.
