Vembakkam Group Home Expansion
Every parent of a child with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (PwIDD) has a concern about who after them will take of their child with special needs. The solution to this concern is provided by Maithree by organizing a "Home away from home" which provides residential care. This also provides an opportunity for "Independent Living". Currently, Maithree can provide residential care for 10 adult PwIDDs and would like to expand it to accommodate 25 persons. At present, there are two bedrooms and a guest room. We want to add additional bedrooms to accommodate more persons.
The present building which is a 2500 sq.ft is in a farm environment situated in the rural area and houses 10 persons. We want to add 4 more bedrooms to add another 15 persons to this facility. The existing common facility like kitchen, dining room, activity room, and drawing hall is sufficient for 25 persons. We propose to add another floor to the existing building and construct 4 bedrooms and a living room.
- The additional capacity will help 15 families to provide residential care for their children.
- Will provide an opportunity for independent living for 15 young adult PwIDDS.
- The support services like caregivers, cook, etc will be optimally utilized thereby reduce the cost of living for each person by about 20%
- This will become a model project for replication in other places.
