Home-Start International

Year of Learning project
For the “Year of Learning” project to mark the 10th anniversary of the founding of Home-Start International. The project provides an opportunity to publicize the findings of the organization’s cumulative experience within the network, to strengthen relationships, to encourage collaboration among members, and to expand the network. The goals of the project are to allow more people to be supported through more effective services, with a focus on ensuring consistent quality throughout the network. The project will place a particular emphasis on preventing child abuse and neglect.

Home-Start International is a grassroots organization that works worldwide to support families with young children. The organization trains volunteers to work with and offers support to families with young children. A Home-Start volunteer visits families, usually once a week for a couple of hours, and shares knowledge about the joys and challenges of raising a family.
