Elim Home is situated in the historical, but impoverished rural town of Elim, some 200kmís from the city of Cape Town. Founded in 1963 by the Moravian Church of South Africa, Elim Home cares for the most severely intellectually and physically disabled children and young adults from disadvantaged communities. The Home is one of only very few full-time residential facilities for disabled children in the Western Cape and was, in fact, the first and only home to accommodate black and coloured children at the time it was established.

Although the Home is Western Cape based, residents come from as far afield as Upington, Pofadder, Port Elizabeth and George.
