Children can thrive, despite the crises at home
At any given time, thousands of children live without a safe family for reasons including neglect, abuse, violence, unemployment, or incarceration. We recruit and support volunteer families to provide children with safe, loving, and temporary homes until they can join a permanent home.
Wee Care – for special needs children
$12 per $100
Every child is special
Children with special needs who have access to love, attention, and early-intervention care are more likely to be matched with a safe, loving, and permanent family, where they can grow and learn to their full potential. We are a voice for children to find a permanent family and we care for them while they wait for their families.

Learning to love
Building trust and attachment is vital for a baby in the first few months of their life. Our staff of child care workers and our team of volunteers make sure every baby is safe, comfortable, and loved while they wait for their forever families.

Government Funding 26%
The Social Welfare Department provides subvention funding to contribute towards a portion of our Child Care Home Wee Care and Foster Care Services. We also partner with the Hong Kong Government to rent three heritage buildings to house our babies, special needs children, and girls in crisis.
Our Mother’s Choice budget, financial policy and procedures are overseen by our Board of Directors and Finance and Investment Committees. Our financial controls ensure that every dollar is spent appropriately.
We commit to keeping three months operational expenditure in our current account, and a total reserve of 150% of our non-subvention annual expenses in cash and liquid instruments to ensure that in times of economic unpredictability and in extreme emergencies, we can always continue to provide care to the most vulnerable.
