Tharros

Thárros Child and Youth Care Centre is a Non-Profit Organisation established to meet the needs of children who experience threat within their community.  Every child that lives with us has been placed as a ward of the state and our duty is to ensure their wellbeing and safety. As a temporary safe haven, we receive children as the first measure to their restoration.  During their 3 to 6 months stay we work in partnership with the external social worker to ascertain the best outcome for the child.  The primary goal is reunification with biological family however in situations where this is not possible, permanent foster care is sought.

In keeping with our mission, we offer a variety of therapeutic programmes to assist the children in our care.  These programmes include Play Therapy, Protective Behaviours, Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping), Groupwork, Meditation and other interventions that serve the individual child best.

Our daily routine is very much as you would find in any home and our children enjoy being taught life skills and responsibility.  School aged children attend public schools in the area while our in-house ECD centre provides a fun and exciting environment for babies to 6 year olds.
