Jeevakkal Integrated Home was inaugurated by the Honorable Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, Selvi. J. Jayalalitha
in September 2012. The Home is an abode for Destitute Children aged between 5

the Integrated Home is 50 persons, of which 25 are children and 25 are aged
persons. All the children are either single parented or unable to be cared at
homes, owing to familial problems. Our elderly are rarely visited from their
homes and this complex is a haven for them.
