Fundatia Pentru Voi
( Pentru Voi )
To promote a new social policy based on UN Standard Rules on Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities.
1. Developing the services provided and dividing them : employment centre and activities centre. In order to do this we will build a new centre, especially designed for those with severe disabilities. We hope that, by the end of 2005, we’ll be able to move 40 service users with severe disabilities, autism and challenging behavior in the new building. 2. Diversifying the residential services by developing a social housing network for persons with intellectual disabilities . This is a very new concept for Romania, being the last step towards independency. We will support five persons coming from institutions, which used to benefit of our residential services during the last years. By the end of 2005 they will be completely on their own feet. 3. Creating a respite care centre –for our service users with challenging behavior, located in DINU house (down strairs), in Sacalaz. We will provide temporary housing services for maximum 3 service users at a time, in crisis situations, at the family’s request. The target is service users with challenging behavior and autism. This centre would be a premiere for Romania, and the service users need well trained staff in order to notice improvements in their behavior. This is why we will continue the training programs with the professionals from Cambridge University, UK.

Purpose it intends to use the money
We will use the money to build and to equip a new Day Centre for people with severe and multiple disabilities. “Pentru Voi” Centre is the only service provider from Timisoara available for the adults with intellectual disabilities. We already have 120 clients and a long waiting list for the admission in the centre (most of the people who are waiting have multiple and severe disabilities). In this moment we can’t accept more people in the centre, because there is a lack of space. These are some of the reasons made really necessary to create a new Day Centre in Timisoara.
Details about projects beneficiaries
Our service users are adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.
