Hope Home is registered social welfare home under the Baan Sabaay Foundation. We are committed to small, family based care and support for children with special needs in Northern Thailand. We believe that all children, including those with disabilities are an integral part of our community and that all benefit from the full inclusion of people with disabilities in our communities. Therefore, we work to empower children to full participation in every environment. We aim to demonstrate the love of God through our Christian witness and care of children with special needs in order to promote the maximum development for each child with the aim each child is accepted into a permanent family setting.
While we are always dreaming of more ways to help empower children with special needs, at present we have two primary projects:
- Family Support & Respite Care: We believe that all children belong in families and are dedicated to supporting biological families and foster families as they work to support and empower their own children with disabilities. We help families through both encouragement and practical support including helping facilitate access to community services, inviting families to participate in all activities with us, and also giving families a break when they need it.
- Hope Home Small Group Home: We have a small residential facility equipped to care for a small number of children with special needs. We currently provide 24/7 care for seven children with special. Children in the small group home include children in need of specialized care, including palliative care, who for some reason are unable to be cared for in their biological families or placed in independent foster care. We are committed to all children across the lifetime and operate the home as a small family environment.
