Case management and counseling program
Families who are most at-risk socially or medically are actively followed through our case management program. Social workers offer counseling, home-visits, and different forms of social aid including food vouchers and warm winter blankets, as well as referrals to other service providers.
Throughout the week, we offer various psychosocial activities such as an elder support group and individual and group art therapy sessions.

Refugee Relief Program
Lebanon has now the highest concentration of refugees of any country in the world. Daily, families, mainly coming from Syria, are flooding the area of Hay el Gharbeh in search of affordable rent.
Families receive several types of assistance such as mattresses, blankets, clothing, fans etc. but also financial help. We distribute monthly over 200 food vouchers to the most vulnerable families.
Our social workers orientate the displaced families to other service providers including the UNHCR.
Prison Support Program
Tahaddi provides weekly visits to women in prison offering moral and emotional encouragement, a link to families and friends outside through letters or phone calls as well as needed supplies.
We focus heavily, although not exclusively, on foreign women who are isolated from their families and support systems. Our aim is to bring comfort to these women by visiting them and caring for their needs.
Tahaddi distributes used clothing and household items. With many refugee families often forced to escape with literally only the clothes on their back and few essentials they could carry, these services have become increasingly needed. Donations of seasonally appropriate clothing and household items are welcome.
