Children separated from their loved ones suffer tremendous stress and anxiety. Whether because of illness or some other tragedy, separation is one of the most stressful experiences anyone could deal with. At any age.The caring staff of Potter’s Gate Charities is extremely sensitive to this fact. We recognize that children who come into an orphanage need special care. From day one. Our caring staff does all they can to treat both the child and, wherever possible, the family as well.
Our staff includes, among other childcare professionals:
We offer many Safe Havens to the most vulnerable members of society worldwide with an emphasis on developing countries. So each of our residences provides a loving, nurturing environment for at-risk children, teens and young adults.
We work to make every orphanage a safe "home away from home". In such an environment, we help children learn appropriate behaviors by providing a structured and positive atmosphere. First, we build a child's confidence by rewarding small successes consistently. So in their next placement, they should be able to build on this progress and continue to build on their strengths.
As a public benefit charitable non-profit organization, we provide resident living for orphaned, abandoned and neglected children worldwide. We also support other small and large orphanages through our community programs.
The benefits of Safe Haven
Children raised in our Safe Haven orphanages by non-family members are no worse in their health, emotional and cognitive functioning, and physical growth than those cared for in their communities by relatives.
Also, the organization’s orphanage-reared children often perform better than their counterparts cared for by community strangers. Which is commonly the case in foster-care programs.
We determine placement on a case-by-case basis depending on the specific needs of the child and family.
