description of organisation

The Immanuel Home and School are responsible to serve and help the severely disabled children and youth, to their daily care and special education. The Home is a daycare center for 88 disabled, 56 are our students with special education and 32 are taking benefit from our social services. The disabled are living at home with their families and they are with us for the day from 8.00-16.00, from Monday till Friday.
Our pedagogical works and therapies are also expanded by the programs of the school year. During the autumn season, we start with a grand opening church service and then a harvest festival and after that, there is a so-called Day of the Reformation.
During the winter season, there is an international day for disabled people in December, Santa Claus day, and we have some creative afternoons in the advent period. Of course int he institution there is a Christmas celebration and the carnival closes the winter period.
In the springtime, we have the national Revolution and War of Independence day int the 15th of March, international Mothers day, the day of Earth and The day of Health.
At the end of the school year, there is a closing celebration with church service.
During summer we have thematical weeks and therapeutic weeks where we work with the disabled, these usually work with the following themes: sports week, swimming week, religious studies week, creative week, dog therapy week, cultural week.
The home was founded in 1991 thanks to parents and specialists/professionals joining with the goal of providing room, space and "home" for those children whose parents were struggling with the problem of being rejected by every institution because of the condition of their kids. The main profile of the institution is to take care of 88 seriously disabled children and young people (between the age of 6 and 30) as a day-care centre; it is also open for those who fell out of the education system.
We have an initiative that is a dance group and theater group for people with a wheelchair. We had last year's several performances on stages across Hungary.
Clients can participate in many creative activities: pottery making, candle making, casting and cast painting, paper bailing, playing with clay, weaving, etc. For the young adult age group, there are activities to prepare them for independent living or helping them with special pedagogy. The home is a church-run institute; we also offer bible studies, confirmation for youngsters and pastoral care.
