Family Strengthening Services

Arise offers Family Strengthening Services aimed to preserve, strengthen and support families in resource-poor communities to build resiliency so that children and their families can overcome adversities and reach their full potential.

Poverty, lack of employment, poor quality education, drug and alcohol addiction, violence and gangsterism destroy local families. We refuse to accept that these common stories of failure are the only option, and we are committed to new stories of restored families, thriving children and transformation.

We develop professionally taught and facilitated psychosocial support programmes for both children and adults to build resilience to overcome the adversities they face by partnering with local organisations.

The services we offer are:

  • Open parenting support group (Family Forum)
  • Develop & implement psychosocial support groups for schools & local NGOs
  • Family Strengthening programmes focusing on the relationship between caregiver and child

Adoption Advocacy and Support - icon

Adoption Support Services

Arise believes that all children thrive in families and need stable, permanent family environments. We believe that adoption is about finding families for children without families. We also support families who choose to grow their families through foster care and safety care. In light of this, we offer professional pre and post placement Alternative Care Support Services to educate, equip and empower families through trauma-informed workshops and conferences.
