Mentoring and Parent Support
We understand that caregivers of children with FASD carry a huge physical and emotional burden and they often have no support in the challenge of raising these children.
In response, Home of Hope runs a Mentor and Parent Support Programme.
Support is given to the family by a mentor who visits the family on a regular basis and assists them in the following ways:
This programme is a free service offered by Home of Hope and continues only with the kind support of donors and benefactors.
Every child with FASD deserves to be understood and properly cared for. Help us give the necessary support and information to their families and care-givers by DONATING TODAY.
We increase awareness about FASD amongst professionals, such as teachers, nurses, social workers and prison officers, and educate them on identifying and working with people who suffer from the condition.
To date we have given training workshops to safety houses, foster homes, people who run prison programs, students in UCT and the University of Stellenbosch, hospital/clinic nurses and supervisors, legal aid criminal lawyers, community workers and school doctors/nurses.
The professional training consists of an overview of FASD and a presentation tailor made to the needs of the professional audience.
The Professional Training is a free service offered by Home of Hope and continues only with the kind support of donors and benefactors.
Please help us to continue delivering these services to our community by DONATING TODAY.
