Nazareth House Cape Town is a Non-Profit-Organisation (NPO) with facilities in Vredehoek and Elsies River.

Nazareth House aims to provide a loving, stable and secure home environment for abandoned, neglected, disabled and orphaned children as well as a last resting place for children with terminal conditions who are unable to return home due to sociable ills. Many are the victims of poverty and abusive homes.

Compared to childcare, caring for the elderly is not a priority for most people. However, similarly to orphans, the elderly are often abused and abandoned or have no financial resources. Nazareth House provides residential care for frail aged men and women in desperate need.

What we do

Children’s Programs

Every child at some stage longs to find their roots, who they really are and who they belong to. We owe it to them to do all we can to help them find the answers. Read More

Home For the Aged

With Government subsidised homes for the aged stretched to the limit, care of these vulnerable elderly people falls onto the shoulders of organisations such as Nazareth House. Read More


Committing to a lifetime of service to the poor and needy is not for everyone. But if you feel this is the life God is asking you to live, you will find ample reward in the joy of a life well lived. Read More

How you can help

Make A difference

Nazareth House is heavily reliant on funding from the public. Please support the Sisters of Nazareth House in their efforts to care for the sick, frail elderly and children.



Volunteers are the one of the life-lines of our organisation and are needed to fulfil a multitude of tasks from feeding the babies to reading to elderly residents to performing admin tasks.



Fundraising for Nazareth House is a rewarding way for community groups, schools, clubs, workplaces and individuals to make a difference for those in need.
