Shelter Home for Children

Shelter Home for Children

About Us

SHELTER is a registered welfare organization for children and teens which began in 1981. As one of the pioneering welfare organization in Petaling Jaya, it was conceived to aid children and teenagers who are abandoned, neglected, orphaned or abused. Its vision is to give ‘children at risk’ a childhood and future by protecting, guiding and healing them, and by building strong communities and loving families.

Our mission, services and initiatives are geared to provide care for children at risk through residential homes, counselling and therapy. This is augmented by services that proactively raise public awareness on child abuse, child protection, parenting and empowerment of youths. With over 25 full time staff and personnel, Shelter is a purpose driven community with relevant skills and leadership to detect signs of abuse and to make a concerted difference to the children’s future.

What We Do

Children at risk

We primarily work among children and teenagers who are abused, abandoned, neglected or at risk. That's our FOCUS.

Childhood & Future

We strive to provide the quality and the enjoyment of life deserved by all children and to ensure a positive outlook for their future. That's our GOAL.


We provide protection by being involved in rescuing and sheltering children from risky and dangerous environments/situations.


We want to develop our children into well balanced, mature and positive members of society.

How You Can Help

Help these children see better days.

One of the most important supports that any organization needs in order to run all of its operation is none other than money. SHELTER currently holds an umbrella of various restorative works, ranging from the three Homes, community work and five refugee schools.

With each work that covers a substantial number of children with their needs, we constantly rely on the generous support from the public and the corporate sector to help meet those needs.
