Lady Hochoy Home – 60 years of service

“What does love look like?
It has hands to help others.
It has feet to hasten, to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want.
It has ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like.”
—Saint Augustine

The driving force in the establishment of the Lady Hochoy Home was Lady Thelma Hochoy. After a visit to the House of Refuge in St James, (now known as the St James Infirmary) Lady Hochoy and Rose Miles, an American social worker, saw the need to have a separate space for children and young people with intellectual disability.

At the time of their visit, the children were housed with destitute adults and other adults with mental health issues.
