The St. John of God Centre offers a residential option to those students who live far away from special school facilities, whose family circumstances require placement, or whose behavior necessitates specialized external training. There are Seven hostels(Homes) located in the facility. Maria Home offers residential placement for girls and young women. Angel Home cares for young boys who attend the school. Richard Home is for boys above eighteen, Donatus Home for boys between 12 and 18 and Menni Home for boys who can live independently.
The aim of these homes is to create an atmosphere that one would experience in one’s own home. The hostels also serve the purpose of creating a domestic environment where social skills and independence training undertaken in the school can be reinforced and practiced. Some of the residents of the hostels are orphans and no distinction is made between them and the others.
