Summary

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.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

"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.

How will this project solve this problem?

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.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project provides a home to fourteen 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.
