It is a special home for mentally challenged boys and girls of different faith communities. It is taking care of children with varying degrees of mental disability. Presently there are sixty three children in the home. The bakery unit started in the center with seed money provided by the CCCYC and the machinery by the Diocese has been providing vocational training to five children.  There is problem in finding qualified personnel for appointment in the home as the salary structure for the newly appointed qualified hands by the CCCYC is very low.  There are two government aided staff members in the project. The government of Tamilnadu gives feeding grant and teaching grant to a few qualified teachers and technicians.

This project has undergone marked changes due to the shift in policy change brought about by the sponsoring body, the CCCYC, in the child care ministry’s focus. The Community and Institution Based Intervention, known as CIBI, with eight clusters of villages near and around Allencode, were identified and eight Community Based Educators called CBEs, appointed. The CIBI program has already taken off and is doing well.
