Muirton Boys Home


Located in the parish of Portland, Muirton Child Care Facility is accommodated on what is now part of a former great house which encompassed 29 acres of land. The Home was established in 1978 with a contingent of thirty (30) boys.

It caters exclusively to the needs of boys between the ages of eleven (11) and eighteen (18) and has the capacity to accommodate thirty (30). However, it currently houses 27 boys, some of whom are mentally and physically challenged.


The Home is partially self-sufficient as it operates a farm where the boys are exposed to:
Animal raring
Poultry rearing
Crop cultivation
Eggs (reared and sold)

The boys attend various schools in the surrounding community with the exception of those who are mentally challenged. They are taught in-house by the social aides.

Over the years some of the boys have excelled academically by moving on to higher level education where they obtain Bachelor and Masters Degrees.

Muirton's mission is to create a stable supportive and nurturing environment to boys who have experience trauma in their lives, by providing intervention and rehabilitation that will ultimately build resilience and aid in their re-socialization.
