Family Engagement

Many parents we know at the Thailand-Myanmar border are struggling to provide food, shelter and an education for their children. We come alongside those at highest risk of crisis and connect them with tangible resources. Our community engagement team is present in intentional relationships with marginalized communities every day. We strengthen community connections and refer families to available local resources. Our team builds relationships with the local authorities and community leaders to be the best possible advocates for our friends.

Protective Factor: Social Connections

Early Childhood Development Center

 

Our center is a safe and nurturing learning environment where preschool-aged children are loved and cared for while their mothers work. The children learn and play all day, and return home each night to reap the benefits of growing within their own family. Our center is unique in this community; children are able to build their creative and cognitive abilities while gaining an understanding of basic literacy, mathematics and science through play. 

Protective Factor: Social-emotional Competence of Children

Crisis Nutrition Support

 
 

For families who are already struggling, an emergency can lead to distress. Food insecurity during those times compounds desperation. We deliver temporary food support to homes to help families persevere through devastation and get back on their feet. We provide baby formula for mothers unable to breastfeed and fortified milk to children to prevent malnourishment. We don't create dependency, but we do ensure no child goes hungry.

Protective Factor: Concrete Support in Times of Need

Parenting Classes

 
 

Parents and caregivers who understand attachment, brain development and the impact of childhood trauma are better able to care for children. We educate parents so they can fully understand the importance of their role in their child's life.

Protective Factor: Knowledge of Parenting & Child Development

Vocational Training

 
 

We identify strengths that struggling parents have and connect them to opportunities that fit their skill sets and needs. Sojourn Studio's day program is designed to empower mothers who need extra income to support their families.
