We’re strengthening families in risk in order to prevent children’s separation from their families

Sometimes, families, which are in some very difficult situation or crisis, cannot take care of their children in a proper way. In such a situation, it could happen that children are being separated from their families. In order to prevent such a situation, our organisation has set up a “Family Strengthening “program in 2013.

Through this program, we provide educational, psycho-social and material support to families in risk. We work with parents in order to strengthen their capacities for taking care of their children and improving their life quality. Currently, through this program, we support families on 4 locations:

Obrenovac

Program was launched in 2014, through project of emergency help and assistance for flooded areas. Our missions was giving support to families so they could continue their lives normally and create healthy environment for children to grow up. Today, this program has been operating through direct work of professional team with families in risk. More about our work you can find on link
