When Did Catherine’s Start Operations?

Catherine’s was founded in 2005 but, began receiving abandoned special needs children in October of 2012.

What is Catherine’s?

Catherine’s Kids is a Christian organization dedicated to the transformation of lives of abandoned special needs and medically fragile children. We provide a loving home and fulfill the emotional, physical, medical and educational needs of our children.

Why is Catherine’s different?

Catherine’s Kids is different because we accept children with severe disabilities that are not accepted in other orphanages. We care for the most needy abandoned children. We accept kids with severe autism, spinal bifida, cerebral palsy, physical deformations that need multiple plastic reconstruction surgeries. We provide a home where the children feel they are family and where all their needs are met with extraordinary love.

Who cares for the children?

Catherine’s Kids has a staff of professionals and trained volunteers that know how to deal with special needs and medically fragile children. Our loving staff works with doctors and specialized rehabilitation professionals to transform the lives of our precious children. We work around the clock to give our children an opportunity to lead a just and joyful life.

What is our goal?

Our goal is to transform the lives of children who are abandoned because of their disabilities and who have extraordinary odds of succeeding in our world. We seek a just and joyful life for our children by attending to their emotional, physical and spiritual needs. We work hard to transform their lives so each child reaches their full potential.

How can I help?

Catherine’s Kids has many venues through which people can help. We look for sponsors that will donate in any amount that is appropriate to their financial situation. We look for volunteers who’s skill set will be matched to our needs. We look for doctors who are pediatric neurology specialists, gastroenterologists, internal medicine, autism specialist, plastic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, nutritionists, etc. You can help by contacting us at
