About us

Blessed Homes works along the Thai-Myanmar border to provide safe and loving homes for children and youth in need. We want to see children who have a hope for the future and courage to act on their dreams.

Our work began in 2007 when we opened our first home in a Karen village in Thailand. Since then, we have grown to four locations in different towns and villages along the border. Each home has 15-30 children and youth and is staffed by Karen locals.

In 2019, Blessed Homes received status as a Thai foundation (0993000409043). We work under the supervision of Tak Province Social Development and Human Security.
