Casework and Group Work
Every year, JMP–L selects needy families to benefit from cash allowances and other material assistance, after thorough study of their cases, home visits, and interviews by our social workers.
The case of each family is reviewed regularly and effort is made not to create dependency. Our social workers regularly visit families that benefit from these services, to ensure their well-being and provide moral support.
We also provide referrals to specialists for medical, psychiatric, legal and family problems.
Cash Allowances and Material Assistance
The cash allowances we provide to families help them pay their daily expenses, such as food, rent, water and electricity bills, etc.
Besides this financial assistance, JMP–L also distributes to needy families materials it receives from some stores and JMP–L friends, including different types of clothing, shoes and used furniture.
“Happy Childhood” Project
As of April 1, 2014, JMP–L began a partnership with the Happy Childhood Foundation (HCF), previously known as Philippe Hatem Foundation, to implement the “Happy Childhood” project. The main goal is to assist underprivileged children, reduce their suffering, and give them the opportunity to have a happier childhood, so that they in turn become ambassadors for a happy childhood when they grow up.
HCF provides assistance to children to secure the basic necessities of life. The financial assistance enables the children to buy new clothes, have healthy and nutritious meals, cover a part of the rent expenses of their home, or purchase hygiene amenities. It also gives the children the opportunity to celebrate their birthdays with friends, go to summer camps, and participate in other recreational activities.
Assistance is provided to children (up to 18 years of age) selected from the families that are beneficiaries of the JMP–L Social Services program.
