Rumah Ozanam was founded in 1987 when the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP); an international lay organization, embarked on a mission to break the poverty cycle in the Malaysian community. There are two homes; one for boys and the other for girls. Both homes are situated in Petaling Jaya and are only a stone’s throw away from each other. The capacities for both homes are 20 each. Both of these homes have study areas, offices and live-in accommodations for the House Mother and her assistant.
Rumah Ozanam focuses on two areas; Academic Enhancement and Personal Development. Their efforts include; proving in-house tuition, building self-esteem and unlocking the resident’s true potential.
Rumah Ozanam is an independent organization that relies on goodwill and donations to sustain. But difficulties never made their spirits falter. They need sponsorships for their residents who are in college and universities as well as necessities for the home’s day-to-day operations. Two of their residents are in a foster care home catering for special needs. Sponsorship for monthly fees is needed for the two.
