This initiative to support families who have experienced violence. We strive to surround them with care and assistance, offering access to specialists who can help both adults and children regain peace and security. As part of the project, psychologists and therapists work with families to help them work through difficult experiences and learn how to build healthy relationships in the future. Our goal is to provide families with a safe space for conversation and support, and to offer practical tools for coping with their new life situation. Our activities are more than a project – they are a space where everyone can find support, understanding and a path to a better tomorrow.

Families experiencing domestic violence face difficulties on many levels of life. Mentally, they may feel lost, frightened and alone, struggling with anxiety and insecurity. From a legal standpoint, they often don’t know what steps to take to effectively protect themselves and their loved ones, and fear of the consequences can keep them from seeking help. On a pedagogical level, children from such families may have problems at school, difficulty forming relationships with peers and reduced academic performance, a direct reflection of the trauma they experience at home. Socially, these families may experience stigma and isolation, which only exacerbates their plight, making it difficult to find a way out of a violent environment. The help offered by the foundation becomes not only a support for them, but often their only hope for change.

Who are we targeting?

Our activities are directed to families, mothers, fathers, children, grandmothers and grandfathers who are victims of domestic violence, whether from a loved one or from unrelated people but with whom they live together. Any form of violence (physical, psychological, financial, economic or emotional) qualifies you to participate in the project and receive our assistance. There are no restrictions on when this violence occurred.
