Since its inception in 1968 as a rehabilitation and vocational training institute for physically challenged men, women and children, the Cheshire Home has been acting as a ray of hope for its inmates who have been left here for better care and treatment by their kin. From education to vocational training to medical treatment, the home takes care of all needs of the special people lodged here. The home currently houses more than 60 inmates from marginal backgrounds. Most of the inmates are children with a considerable number of middle and old-aged people as well. Some children were sent here by their parents while others come from orphanages.
