Prevention of refusals from newborns
The Fund provides co-financing of the "Warm House" project. This is a center for temporary stay in Moscow region for mothers with newborn children who, being in a difficult life situation due to lack of housing, work and support of relatives, are on the verge of giving up their own children.
The goal of the project is to keep the baby in the family, giving the mother a roof over her head and support of specialists. In the "Warm House" a psychologist, a social worker and a lawyer create a rehabilitation environment that helps women become caring mothers and prepare for an independent life outside the shelter. At the same time, the center can accommodate up to 7 families.
