During a recent visit to family and friends in Italy, I had the pleasure to meet in Rome Dr. Carolina Amelio, Founder of CaroAnto Amelio, a non-profit organization born in 2014 to assist and support families of children with disabilities. So far Dr. Amelio’s work focused on these three main goals:
- Emotional empowerment of disabled children and teenagers
- Parents’ support aimed at addressing their commitment in helping their children to achieve autonomy and to strengthen their capacity regardless of limitations
- Support for siblings and their future lives.
Moving forward, the non-profit organization’s focus is to build a multi-function center:
- The CaroAnto Center: a rehabilitation center with traditional and cutting edge therapies able to address the emotional aspects of the person rather than only on the aspects of the disability
- The CaroAnto Residence: a living space for adults with sensory disabilities (blind, deaf or deaf and blind people) able to conduct an independent life. They will have the option to rent a room in single or double accommodations with a friend or a life companion; the goal is to lay the foundations for a future in full autonomy and having the security of a protected environment
- The CaroAnto Shop: a retail area dedicated to workshops and sale of objects handcrafted by the residents and to be sold to the public as a reward of their work
