WHO WE ARE

 

The children and adolescents social centre (Vaikų ir paauglių socialinis centras) – it is a nongovernmental and nonprofit organization that takes care of socially damaged children and their families.

 

 The main purpose of the organization is to develop and restore the children's and adults’ mental and social resources to their optimal and effective participation in society.

 

 The organization consists of the department of Svencionys, the department of Piliakalnis and the children day centre “Svajone“ (en. Dream).

 

 The department of Svencionys: there live two families of children. There are about 12 children in one family.  They are in the temporary or permanent care.

 

 The department of Piliakalnis: there is a social care home where two families of children live. There are about 12 children in one family.  They are in the temporary or permanent care. Also there is a Youth Home where live about 12 teenagers who are over 16 years old. The Self-sufficing Life Home belongs to this department too. There live people and families who need special social services – people who are in a social risk, people who experienced violence in their immediate environment or have a crisis in their families.

 

 The organization has a social care of the 60 children who are from 1 to 18 years old. The children who are over 16 move to the Youth home.
