Naruc Child Crisis Centre is a residential centre. Since February 2000 we provide help to children victimized by abuse and neglect. The capacity of the Centre is 22 children, their age ranging mostly from 3 -12.
Over the 19 years we have provided a temporary residential care to more than 600 children and up to 60 mothers accompanying their children. Child abuse victims receive here a whole range of services, among them psychological and special-pedagogical care. We help them to handle their difficult life situations and alleviate negative consequences of traumatic experiences they have gone through.
All of our children are affected by adverse family environment. Some of them experienced emotional or physical abuse, some were sexually abused, most of them severely neglected. Moreover, the vast majority suffers from various physical and emotional health problems. Some children are malnourished when they come to our centre. With increasing age, they show also behavioural disorders caused by negative family patterns.
Naruc Child Crisis Centre is a place where children receive comprehensive care. Our goal is to ensure that they have a nurturing, child-focused environment with access to the best services and professional expertise possible. Within the Centre, also at-risk families find necessary support.
