Our Vision: “Every child belongs in a family where he/she can grow up with love, respect and security.”
Our Mission’/i]: to protect children who have lost the care of their parents and guardians or who are at risk of losing it.
Family Placement Programs:
This is a method of taking in children in the short or medium term who, due to different situations of mistreatment, abuse, or parental death and other situations of vulnerability, have lost or at risk of losing parental care.
We cover the necessities and accompany the child, adolescent or youth during his/her entire integral development from a familiar vantage point.
The work that we do allows us to accompany the child, adolescent or youth, promoting his/her integral development in a familiar environment, where he/she acquires the habits, attitudes and required skills to become a person who is committed to society, family and his/herself.
Prevention Programs in Family Strengthening:
With our programs of Family Strengthening we take as a base the original family as a key player, recognizing the primary and fundamental role of the family in the holistic development of a participating child, for which we offer space for the development of parenting skills that help diminish distinct societal problems such as domestic violence, abuse, mistreatment and child endangerment.
This program consists of providing academic support to primary and early middle school students who demonstrate learning difficulties, scholastic delay, cultural or social delay which interferes with their ability to respond adequately to the demands of the education system.
This program includes the incorporation of psycho-pedagogical professionals who can address the alphabetization difficulties presented by our target population. In the same manner, we seek to lower the index of academic failure and school desertion resulting from learning and psycho-pedagogical difficulties.
This program seeks to create a virtual classroom which secures the teaching and learning process as an organized service, responding both to the wide digital divide which exists in the program. In this sense, it favors the integration of the NNAJ and Direct Attention Specialists into the digital and information world, granting access to the culture and possibilities which the TIC provides for a quality education that allows the distribution of information and the exchange of ideas and experiences.
