''Little Hearts' home for children with mental and physical disabilities
Little Heats is a care home in Thiruvanamalai in the Tamil Nadu area of India. The home cares for 13 children who have been taken from the streets by the center's staff, and who all have a mental or physical disability. The home provides diagnostic resources, a psychiatric analysis followed by medical intervention and therapy in the form of recreational activities. The home supports follow up care to each of the children it works with, but also values the importance of supporting integration back into the community and homes once treatment is complete to allow independence, growth and development of the child. The center supports this by offering vocational training and skill development.
Little Hearts is currently seeking to expand its capacity to support more children. It has identified several more children that would greatly benefit from its care, but does not have the staff, medical resources or space to accommodate them.
