Tanner Romania Mission Charity Profile
"Religion that God our father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world"
James 1:27 Tanner Romania Mission's goal is to provide for the children taken into their care for the rest of their lifetime.
The majority of these children will never live independent lives outside of the group home. Although a few of the children attend public schools in Nicoresti, Romanian society does little to accept people with disabilities and this is evident in the lack of care that they previously experienced.
As well as meeting the physical demands of the children and young adults as some of them are now, there are emotional, developmental, and spiritual needs that also need consideration.
The children are raised on the principles of the Christian faith and are shown God's grace and love daily by the provisions He has given.
There is also a teacher than provides schooling within 2 of the group homes.
Developments on many levels with individuals are unmistakably the result of the foundation, the love and time given to them by all who have worked within it.
The Tanner Romania Mission seeks to give hope to these children that have both seen and experienced so much suffrage, providing them with life skills to help them look after themselves within the confines of a safe, secure and supportive family environment.
Tanner Romania Mission Volunteer Information
The Tanner Romania Mission has opportunities for volunteers to serve within the foundation.
You would need to commit between 6 weeks abd 3 months to volunteering and be prepared to do what is needed.
Most of your time will be spent providing structured activities for the children. The volunteer role should be flexible in that you should help where the need is whether that be helping to clean or cook when the children are busy with chores or helping with the personal care of individuals as staff request.
Volunteers are based in one home during their volunteer time but you are not bound to one house. Visits to other houses are welcomed and children can be taken on outings.
Volunteers live together above Casa Hannah which is central to all of the group homes. It has 3 sleeping areas, open living area (dining, kitchen and lounge area), shared bathroom and storage areas.
Volunteers are provided with all meals. The main meal is in the middle of the day and is had at the house you are volunteering in. You can still have your main meal at the group home even on days off if you wish. Food is provided for you at the volunteer home for the purpose of preparing a light meal for your dinner and breakfast.
If you are considering this worthy cause bear in mind the following:
You are responsible to Sandy and Bruce
There are many responsibilities that staff and the founders have to live by as not following correct protocol can lead to children being taken out of their care. You as a volunteer need to respect and live by these.
Be prepared to serve in whatever way necessary.
Volunteers work 8 hour days, 5 days a week and this time should be dedicated to the care of the children you are working with as well as providing structured activities for them to participate in.
