Support for Family & Care Givers

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 Program (MAPS).

Support is given to the family by a mentor who visits the family on a regular basis and assists them in the following ways:

  • Giving them information on FASD and providing them with practical support and interventions to address the challenges they face with their children.
  • Information on FASD is given to extended family members as well as to the communities in which these children live.
  • The mentor works with caregivers, family members and service providers to find ways of changing the child’s environment to suit the child’s needs.
  • Families are helped to become strong and independent so that they can help other families in their communities whose children suffer from FASD and other neuro-developmental disorders.

The MAPS programme is a free service offered by Home of Hope and continue 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.
