Core Values & Projects

What we do
“Every child deserves a champion – An adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.”

– Rita F Pearson

RESCUE

Babies are rescued in various ways, either by SAPS, Child Protection Services or from hospitals where mothers request to give their child up for adoption.

Babies often arrive unwell, malnourished and traumatized from neglect, abuse or the displacement from familiar faces.

RESTORE

The Almond Tree staff are passionate about caring for and nurturing vulnerable babies and children.

We are devoted to caring for and restoring every baby that comes through our doors. The Almond Tree has dedicated, trained staff who understand the trauma experienced by babies.

RELEASE

The Almond Tree is actively involved in decision making from the moment a baby or child is placed in our care.

We determine outcomes through a multi-disciplinary team that meet regularly to discuss the progress of individual cases and together ensure that the interests of the child are prioritized.
