Summerfield Residential Child Care Facility

The Summerfield Residential Child Care Facility is located in North Central Clarendon in the district of Summerfield near Chapleton.

The facility began operation in 1976 with 16 boys. The home now accommodates 45 boys between the ages of nine to eighteen years of age who have been made wards of the State deemed to be in need of Care and Protection.

The Summerfield Residential Child Care Facility is owned and managed by the CDA which an Executive Agency of the Government of Jamaica.

Efforts are made to have all the boys enrolled in Community School and at present only four (4) of the 45 boys do not attend school. The boys interact with members of the community and attend church and related activities.

The boys maintain contact with family members through telephones, letters and home visits. Efforts are made to reintegrate the boys with their families once they are willing and able to receive them.

There is a Computer Lab and the boys are exposed to Information Technology classes and utilize this to assist with their studies. The boys are involved in small scale agriculture to meet some of their needs.

The facility is served by staff consisting of a manager, social worker and other caregivers who ensure that the needs of the children are met.

The objective of the facility is to provide the environment to enhance the growth and development of the boys so that the can realize their full potential and contribute to nation building.
