Community Center - Services for children and families at risk

Introduction

OASIS Center is a multifunctional community center which offers integrated services for children and families in need. Approximately 120 persons (25 families - 35 children) attend our center: on a daily basis for the children, while parents benefit from weekly follow-up and activities either at the center or through home visits.

OASIS Center is the continuation of almost 20 years of commitment to the Roma & Egyptian community that used to live on the Tirana dump.

Families from this community are now rehoused outside the dump and show a better social integration, in the neighborhood of Kombinat (social housing, employment, schooling, social life).

Mission & Goals 

We want to see children:

  • protected from violence and abuse and living in empowered & caring families surrounded by a caring community.
  • with increased sense of well-being and resilience.
  • becoming agents of change in their families and communities.
