Our Vision is to establish Mothers with Children Transitional Living Centers that give single or abandoned mothers and their children safe living conditions and opportunities to gain the skills and education necessary to provide for their family independently. These centers are a place of encouragement and support, giving women the time and tools they need in order to stabilize their lives so they can become independent and self-sufficient parents and for their children to grow up in a secure and loving environment. Vision for the Children International assists those with like minded vision and passion with the necessary programs, resources, tools and consultation necessary for them to open and run a successful Transitional Living Center within their own ministry and community.
Our Program Focus is designed around the creation of small family style Transitional Living Centers, much like a home, that will allow 3 to 4 mothers and their children to live together for up to two years as they receive necessary support and rehabilitation. Mothers share household duties and cooking responsibilities. These centers have daily scheduled routines and programs associated to the individual's needs. They provide a warm family environment which is critical to the well-being of those who live there. Unlike large government institutions, having smaller family style centers allow for flexibility and personalized attention for each mother and child, plus it allows for a greater involvement by volunteers and local community. This type of center can be easily be adapted to a larger piece of property where there are a number of individual homes that are administrated as one project. The program can also be adapted to a larger single facility depending on the needs of a community.
