SUPPORT CENTER
FOR BLIND AND PARTIALLY SIGHTED PEOPLE WITH MULTIPLE DISABILITIES

P R O J E C T

INTRODUCTION:

The idea of creating the Support Center for blind and partially sighted people with multiple disabilities came into being because of parents and caretakers of people with these disorders, who met in the Association of Parents and Friends of the Blind and Partially Sighted Children 'TĘCZA' ('RAINBOW').
The Association currently runs three rehabilitation facilities in Warsaw. They are day care institutions that guarantee education, rehabilitation, care & treatment, with a program aimed primarily at children and young people.
The 'TĘCZA' facilities have been up and running for twenty years what means that some of their pupils already require specific actions aimed at adults.

Driven by the need to help their loved ones and to provide further active rehabilitation to adult protégés of the 'Tęcza' Association the parents established the 'Tęczowy Dom' ('Rainbow House') Foundation and came up with the idea of the Support Center.

The land that belongs to the Foundation is 8000 sq.m large (40x200 m). It has access to electricity and water.

The components of the Support Center:

1. The House - a center for permanent residence

2. Multidisciplinary rehabilitation center for people with multiple disabilities
