"The CAYS Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to empowering youth and their families, who are experiencing difficulties achieving their full human potential..."
In December 2002, the Children and Youth Services (CAYS)
Foundation was established as a private Government Owned
Company mandated to manage and operate two Residential Homes
(The Frances Bodden Girls Home and the Bonaventure Boys Home )
providing 24 hour residential care for at-risk adolescents
Youth are placed in the Homes through the Department of Children
and Family Services (DCFS) via Court Orders
The underlying aim of CAYS Foundation’s service methodology is to
provide treatment for broken lives by maintaining a:
24 hour, outcomes driven therapeutic approach
Frances Bodden Children’s Home
Originally a Girls Home, this home is now a Children’s Home, providing limited accommodation for boys
needing care and protection.
