what we do3Background

In 2002, the three Children’s Homes, St George’s, St Joseph’s, St Nicolas’ and the Anglican Diocese of Johannesburg started working closely together in an intensive change management process to form COACH. 

A resolution to Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Johannesburg was passed in February 2005, which incorporated COACH into Diocesan structures with full voting powers. On 1 April of that same year, a unified Board became a legal entity. A new constitution has been registered and COACH has both NPO and PBO status.

Administration of the homes has been centralised (including human resources, financial management, and fundraising).

In 2004 the process to move from simply providing custodial care to transforming St Nicolas, St George’s and St Joseph’s into therapeutic, life space intervention centres began.  The residential and community development services were restructured and coordinated under a central management structure.
