Emmanuel House, located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, provides holistic care to marginalized children, youth, and families. NOLM's Emmanuel House team is best known for reuniting lost (missing) children back with their families all over Ethiopia.

Stories Meet the team

NOLM partners with the Addis Ababa Police Commission and The Children's Justice Project of Ethiopia and accepts lost children referred to Emmanuel House for reunification with their families. Emmanuel House has the capacity for 30 children. Emmanuel House provides shelter, food, clothing, medical, educational, psychosocial, spiritual, and other kinds of support services to children transitioning at the house.

Due to the complexities of the children's cases, the average length of stay for children living at Emmanuel House is 3 months. The average age of children living at Emmanuel House is 12, however, we have children of all ages.

Our main goal is to reunite/reintegrate each child back into a safe environment with family members and/or loved ones.
