At Nazareth House Johannesburg, we strive to uphold the Core Values of our foundress, Victoire Larmenier, in all that we do.
The Sisters and staff care for 30 HIV+ orphans in our Children's Home, and we have 100 retired men and women, including frail aged, in Aged Care. Most of the residents of Nazareth House can no longer adequately care for themselves or be maintained by the community.
Through our Outreach programme we interact with the community around us through an art clinic and community visits and support.
We have a Management Committee and employ a team of full-time managers to care for the medical, financial and technical well-being of the home. The Committee is constituted according to the requirements of the Department of Social Development and consists of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and members who carry appropriate portfolios.
As a welfare organisation, we are subject to regular inspections and evaluations by the National and Provincial Departments of Health and Social Development (it has been described by both Departments as “a model House”).
Nazareth House is registered as a Section 18A organisation
