At St Benedict's the Child Comes First

Welcome to St. Benedict's Day Nursery and Children's Home, a unique institution dedicated to providing care for underprivileged and special needs children on the island chain of St Vincent and the Grenadines, in the West Indies.

Originally opened in the early 1960’s, St Benedict’s has provided countless benefits to the Vincentian community in its more than 40 years of service.  St Benedict’s provides an enhanced quality of life to St Vincent’s most vulnerable and often most neglected citizens: children with physical and/or mental disabilities.  The children of St Benedict’s are provided with a safe, nurturing environment that encourages them to thrive and develop individual interests and talents.

As you look through our pages, you’ll discover remarkable and courageous children and a dedicated staff led by the Corpus Christi Carmelite Sisters, striving to help them reach their maximum potential and giving them options in life, where there would otherwise be none.  We would also like to invite you to St Vincent & the Grenadines to meet the children and see first hand the tremendous work the Sisters are doing.

St Benedict’s functions on the generous financial support of people like you for day-to-day operations, to send the children to school, and most recently to build a much-needed new facility for our residents.  Please consider offering your contributions, every penny of which helps to improve the lives of the children.  God Bless.
