Wards of the Musgrave Girls' Home have all been placed at different abodes since fire gutted the establishment last month, said Alison Anderson, chief executive officer of the Child Development Agency.
The 40 girls, aged 12 to 18, are being housed at the Maxfield Park Children's Home, the HEART Trust Academy in Stony Hill, while some have been reunited with their families.
Seventeen girls have been placed at Maxfield Park, in Kingston.
"These girls are in one place at one of the cottages, which was not occupied," Miss Anderson told The Gleaner earlier this week.
While at Stony Hill, the girls have been placed in groups of five throughout the institution.
"The workers of HEART (Stony Hill) have been very kind to the girls, making them comfortable," she said.
However, come June 6, the girls currently being housed at Stony Hill will be permanently placed at two or three children's home in St. Catherine, Kingston and St. Andrew.
While the girls are adjusting at their new homes, Miss Anderson said they are yearning for Musgrave.
"They miss Musgrave, it was their home. They bounce back, but every now and then they are a little sad," she said.
"Especially the ones at HEART (Stony Hill), they feel a little left out because they are not at a home," added the chief executive officer.
Help flowing in
However, Miss Anderson noted that, owing to the overwhelming support from individuals and corporate Jamaica, the girls are able to feel better.
"Donations have been flowing-in, in cash and kind," she said.
Meanwhile, the CDA is contemplating removing the Musgrave Girls' Home from its current location to another more suitable area.
"We are not sure if we will rebuild at that same location or at another. But when we do, it will be done properly as a committee will be established with the input of the children," Miss Anderson said.
The home was damaged by fire on May 2. The damage was estimated at $18 million and the cause of the fire is still unknown.
