Our project provides long-term care to Armenian orphans with disabilities over the age of 18 with no place to call home. We offer them an alternative to the Soviet psychiatric institutions.
"Warm Hearth is not a project; it's a home," says founder, "that's sustained by the faces of our residents and the harsh fate that awaited them if something was not done." We serve Armenian orphans with disabilities who are destined for the psychiatric institutions. We believe they deserve basic human rights and this means a loving home and a life of dignity. Our group homes are long-term and address the challenge of having a disability in Armenia.
We operate a safe & loving group home for residents with disabilities, which reduces abuses of human rights in psychiatric institutions & increases rights through integration. Our staff provides care that encourages residents toward independence.
The project provides a home to thirteen residents, allowing them to live outside the psychiatric institutions. It's a model for community-based care and a pilot project for moving away from institutionalization.
Life here is very good. It's wonderful; the days are wonderful & we pass time wonderfully. I feel free here. It's restful here & calm. There are no problems here that I need to think about. - Gayane, Beneficiary and resident of Warm Hearth Group Home
