MSF Juvenile Homes: New Admissions

The MSF Juvenile Homes cater to juveniles who are at risk, or have gotten into trouble with the law, but whose behaviour and circumstances render community-based options inappropriate or unsuitable.

These Homes offer rehabilitative programmes to help and develop the juveniles so that they can reintegrate into society as socially responsible persons.
