In 1950s when ECH was established, the overall living standard of Hong Kong was quite poor. Some parents might not be able to afford financially taking care of all children if they have many children. Or some parents died in their early years. Our society has been changing a lot. The children transferred by Social Welfare Department to Evangel Children’s Home, are seldom orphans. Most of their parents are either mentally or physically ill which make them unable to play the parenting role, or they committed different kinds of criminal behaviors.
From the very beginning of ECH’s establishment in 1956, we have been providing “Resident Home Care Service” – but serving children of different ages as time went by. We are currently providing 3 kinds of services:
- Residential Home Care Service
- Day Care Service
- Youth Home with Career Guidance and Counseling Service
