Caleb House (Casa Kaleb in Romanian, Kaleb Ház in Hungarian) aims to help young people who have grown up in children’s homes in Cluj-Napoca, Romania to learn the skills to cope with independent living.
The Caleb House Foundation is a legally-registered Romanian non-profit organisation, which works in connection with supporters overseas including the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.
The vision for Caleb House came about when the Aksza Mission to Street Children in Cluj-Napoca identified the need for an “aftercare house” for young people aged 18 and over. Living in the house would enable them to continue in education and teach them life skills in preparation for independent living.
The acquisition of Caleb’s premises was aided by funds donated by PCI’s Youth and Children’s 'Wings Project' while furnishings were paid for by PCI's Young Women’s Group.
Ilona Veres, who formerly worked with the Aksza Mission to Street Children, continues to be involved in the lives of the young people at the Caleb House.
