The impact of the Corona Virus pandemic, as well as the fire we experienced in September 2021 have caused us to stop and re-evaluate how we do what we do and where our main focus as a Non-Profit Organisation should be. We have expanded our vision to serve as Family Centre focusing on foster care in addition to a Child and Youth Care.
We believe in the value of collaboration and welcome partnering with others in investing and impacting the lives of those in our community. Our focus is children and families and we firmly follow an Asset-based Community Development approach (ABCD model).
At Thárros we have restructured our operational system to include the services of a Social Worker and qualified Child and Youth Care Practitioners. These staff members provide therapeutic services to children placed in foster care and in-house at Thárros.
The overwhelming support received after our fire incident in September 2021 until now has enabled us to do some much needed renovations to our Home, and to serve as a hub in providing training and support services to families especially in the area of foster parenting.
As an NPO directly involved in the protection of children, Thárros needs to be readily available for the almost certain aftermath of the effects of the Coronavirus on our communities. We have experienced a big drop in our regular donor pool due to the economic crisis on businesses and individuals, leaving us vulnerable in our ability to provide our much-needed services. We thus iterate that your support and assistance is imperative to our existence; we cherish whatever form of help you can provide.
