Granville Place of Safety

Granville Child Care Facility, the brainchild of two Probation Officers was established 55 years ago on September 1954 as a safe haven for children who could not return home for a number of reasons.

Granville is now a place of safety for young women between the ages of 8 and 18, who have experienced abuse, abandonment or neglect, and are deemed in need of care and protection.

The facility houses between 80 and 90 girls. Girls at Granville are exposed to counseling, family life and vocational training (cooking and sewing), arts and craft as well as traditional academic subjects like Mathematics, English and Science.
