Target demographics: Vulnerable children in Central Vietnam including children from poor families, children with disabilities, orphans and street children.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 40,000

Geographic areas served: Central Vietnam

Programs: Hope System of Care For Children with Disabilities provides comprehensive care to children with disabilities including those who have congenital impairments or may have been negatively impacted by Agent Orange.

Expert members serving on an interdisciplinary Care Management Team (CMT), after consideration of a thorough assessment of the child’s need, make recommendations, for a care plan that is based on addressing the child and families specific needs. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the maximum physical, social and emotional recovery and quality of life, including community integration for children with disabilities. Case Managers assist the CMT, the CWD, and family by providing initial assessment, coordination of care, and follow-up. Services may be any combination of educational/vocational, medical (surgeries, therapy, medicine), aide equipment (wheelchairs, prosthetics, hearing aides, glasses), nutritional, and housing. Further, the system is family-centered such that the parent’s strengths and challenges are considered as well. Support for the family may include a microfinance business loan to increase income and thereby enhanced capacity to care for their CWD, or they might be invited to a parent support club to reduce the strong feelings of isolation. Finally, the child’s situation is reviewed by the CMT a minimum of every six months to adjust the care plan as needed.

Two central features of this system of care methodology include: (1) a case management model with Case Managers assigned to a group of cases, and (2) a community level Care Management Team (CMT), which includes key government and expert service representatives. Community Care Workers at the Ward and Commune level assist the Case Managers to assess, implement, follow-up, and make regular home visits.

Children of Vietnam works to change for the better the lives of poor,homeless, orphan, disabled, and vulnerable children in Vietnam.
