Welcome to the Home for Aged and Handicapped (HAH), where our mission is to provide quality of life for specially-abled children and adults through rehabilitation, education, and skill-based training.
Our organization was founded in Nagpur in 1890, when the Bishop of Nagpur, Monsignor Riccaz, took on the responsibility of caring for abandoned lepers and the crippled. The land for our facilities was given by Fatesingrao Raje Bhonsale to the Catholic Mission.
Over the past 133 years, the Salesian Missionaries of Mary Immaculate (SMMI) have taken on the mantle of caring for those in need, providing a home and support for the elderly destitute, physically challenged youth, and specially-abled children.
At Home for Aged and Handicapped (HAH), our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where all residents can live with human dignity and self-confidence. Whether through rehabilitation, education, or job training, we strive to give all of our residents the tools they need to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

From Humble Beginnings: The Story of the Poor House
Home for Aged and Handicapped popularly known as “Poor House” was always a shelter for the less fortunate in society. It consisted only of mud huts by the side of the road where as many as 100 men, women, and children were kept and cared for. They have had to be fed, clothed, and medically attended to. The sisters repaired a few camel stables and stayed with the people. With meager help from Bishop, donations from friends and well-wishers, simple living, and savings of the sisters, they managed to run the Institution. The Municipal Corporation used to donate a saree and a dhoti to every inmate once a year. Thus, the Residents of the Home and Sisters continued to live in a miserable dilapidated accommodation for nearly 70 years.
