Summary

We seek to heal the traumatic wounds suffered by girls and teens ages 6 to 17 victims of abuse neglect and/or abandonment. Our multi-disciplinary team in this project works together in a coordinated approach to assure that each one of our clients receives personalized attention to their particular needs and conditions. The team is composed of experts in human conduct and medical care exclusively recruited for having a profound understanding of the reciprocal effects of giving.

Challenge

Abused children cannot express emotions safely. Thus, the emotions get stuffed down, coming out in unexpected ways. All types of child abuse and neglect leave lasting scars. Some of these scars might be physical, but emotional scarring has long lasting effects throughout life, damaging a child's sense of self, ability to have healthy relationships, and ability to function at home, at work and at school.

Solution

Hogares Teresa Toda provides individual psychosocial services and formation sessions on conflict resolution, managing emotions and relationships, and case work assistance. A nutritionist creates personal nutrition plans for residents in need. Our nurse/health educator provides primary health care prevention services and primary health care awareness workshops and a our recreational therapist provides important exercise and recreational therapies as an integral dimension of wellbeing.

Long-Term Impact

Our Residents will: 1. Improve self-esteem and overall sense of wellness. 2. Increase knowledge related to conflict resolution, and emotional intelligence by 15%. 3. Increase knowledge related to healthy nutrition, eating habits and disorders by 10%. 4. 100% receive health screenings. 5: Increase knowledge related to health awareness and healthy lifestyles by 15%. 6. Increase knowledge and practice related to exercising and physical fitness by 10%
