Let's help ensure safety and peace for children at home!

Every child deserves a dignified home, regardless of their background

Housing for Children: Why We Launched the Project

We seldom realize the significance hidden in the simple phrase "having a home." And we forget how many children don't have one. However, a home means more than just a roof over one's head. It also means a safe and peaceful place where children and parents can live without fear of the future. If parents, for any reason, find themselves in a difficult situation that has a significant impact on their existence and their children, the very safest and most crucial aspect—the home—may be at risk.

That's why we're implementing the Housing for Children project for single mothers and fathers. We assist single parents in securing and maintaining dignified housing while improving their overall situation and quality of life.

Securing stable housing is often an insurmountable challenge for single-parent families. As one-income households, they lack the means to pay rental deposits and are forced to resort to shelters or hostels. They also face time constraints, such as when leaving abusive partners and needing accessible and safe housing within days or weeks. Therefore, we provide rental deposit assistance and, when needed, supported housing.

We recognize that obtaining dignified housing and maintaining it is not easy. A integral part of the project is a comprehensive annual program that enables parents to take the first step towards stabilizing their difficult life situation.

The goal of the project is not just one-time assistance but a sustainable solution to the problems and challenges that families must overcome to provide children with a long-term safe and dignified home. ivamus ac leo pretium faucibus.
