Social dormitory program "Halfway home"
Every year, after graduation, orphans and children deprived of parental care begin to live independently.
They often face difficulties in adapting to society. A number of challenges remain that graduates cannot overcome on their own: lack of housing, difficulties in finding work, lack of adult mentors to whom they could turn for help and advice. Children from crisis families face similar problems.
In order to help young people at the beginning of their independent path, in 2006 the Charity Foundation "Aspern" organized a program "Social dormitory "Halfway Home". The main purpose of this program is to provide temporary accommodation, as well as to prepare for independent living orphans, children deprived of parental care, and young people.
Children and young people aged 15 to 23 who find themselves in a difficult life situation are admitted to the social dormitory " Halfway Home". Providing assistance in a social dormitory involves assessing the needs of newcomers, creating an individual work plan. Our organization strives to find a special approach to each child and provide them with comfortable living and development conditions. The clients are provided with temporary housing as well as food, clothing, necessary hygiene products, other hard and soft equipment.
Specialists of the organization provide social support, conduct individual and group classes under the program "Independent Personality", aimed at developing and maintaining skills of independent living. We also assist clients in getting an education, gaining professional skills and finding a job. If necessary, psychological assistance, medical and educational services are provided.
