‘The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: To look after widows and orphans in their tribulation, and to keep oneself without spot from the world.‘ – James 1:27
Jah-Jireh Homes South Africa
The name Jah-Jireh is scripturally based and essentially means: Jehovah Provides.
Gen 22: 14 says: ” And Abraham began to call the name of that place Je‧ho′vah‐ji′reh. This is why it is customarily said today: “In the mountain of Jehovah it will be provided.
Jah-Jireh Homes have been in existence in the United Kingdom for over 27 years and in Canada for over 13 years. Other homes have been established in South Korea and Poland.
There is a great need for facilities for our elderly and infirm brothers and sisters that cater to their particular needs.
WHAT MAKES JAH-JIREH DIFFERENT TO OTHER CARE HOMES?
At Jah-Jireh Homes across the world, there are programmes to care not only for the physical needs of our older brothers and sisters but also their spirituality.
Here is just a short list of some of the spiritual activities happening at different Jah-Jireh Homes:
Days text, daily bible reading and weekly family worship
Meeting preparation and learning to use the workbook
Facility to watch the meetings live if unable to attend
A literature trolley kept in the home for residents use
Some congregation ministry groups meet at the homes which residents like to sit in on even if unable to go out
JW Broadcast monthly programme
Spiritual ‘coffee mornings’ which we are told the residents love
All homes have arrangements to attend the convention. For those unable to attend, provisions have been made for them to watch live the same weekend or downloaded to watch in separate sessions.
Prayers are offered regularly as and when appropriate or requested by the residents. Many homes also have trustees assigned to each home who regularly visit and spend time listening to the residents and offering support and bible based advice.
Want To Know More or Help Out?
We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved or organise any spiritual activities in the home. Some of our more able-bodied residents get such joy from spending a short time on street work or cart witnessing.

Perhaps you have some disposable assets which you would like to use as a donation.
We are grateful for the contributions and help we receive, whether it be financial or volunteering your time. Please contact us with your inquiries.
