Summary

Lighthouse of Hope MK exists to provide care for vulnerable children in North Macedonia through weekly therapy sessions - physical therapy, life skills training, play therapy, and communication. These sessions take place at The JOY Home Day Center, a beautiful home located just outside of Bitola. Our specially-equipped bus picks the children up and drops them off for a time of fun, play, and healing. Each of our therapists is trained in Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI).

Challenge

There are many children residing in government group homes who are facing various special needs - physical, emotional, and/or cognitive challenges. This is why we use a multifaceted approach with several different types of therapy, and goals that are individual to each child's needs and abilities.

Solution

This ongoing project, when fully funded, will have provided us with the ability to provide trauma informed care for over 25 children currently living in government group homes through weekly and biweekly therapy sessions all year round. This includes providing several different types of therapy, supplies for therapy programs with themes so the children can learn about different subjects while receiving therapy, snacks, diapers, and much more!

Long-Term Impact

Providing vulnerable children in North Macedonia a safe space where they are seen, heard, and loved - where they can feel emotions, big and small, and be recognized as precious and deserving of love and attention - is our long-term goal. Forming secure attachments is a long process and there is no short-cut to healing. This is why we are committed to continuing our work with the children in our care and eventually growing our programs to reach even further than the four walls of The JOY Home.
