The HOME Project is a non-profit organization set up to address the needs of refugee children, who arrive in Greece alone. We move children from the streets, camps, police stations, detention centers and bring them to the safety of our HOMES where they receive a holistic network of child protection services with the ultimate aim of social inclusion.
Our model is three-fold:
- We create HOMES where children receive a holistic network of child protection services via an individual development plan that includes mental health, educational, social, pedagogical and legal support.
- We create jobs for both the Greek and the refugee community.
- We add value to the local economy by renovating and renting vacant buildings in urban areas, lifting an economic burden from the owners while engaging local communities.
In less than three years we operate 11 shelters with a capacity of 220 children, we have supported more than 450 unaccompanied children, and we have offered 140 jobs.
The global refugee crisis is a humanitarian disaster. The HOME Project transforms despair to hope, loss to gain, death to life.
