Our mission

In 1997, Casa Ioana opened the country’s first night shelter, for people who had lost their homes, following a request by the Mayor of Bucharest. Since 2000 however, we have focused our attention on providing temporary accommodation and professional psychosocial support to women and children experiencing domestic violence and family homelessness.

We passionately believe "that everyone has the right to decent housing, meaningful activities, satisfying relationships and the good health to enjoy life".

Our mission is ‘to make a positive difference in the lives of families and single women confronted with domestic violence together with other families and single women facing or at risk of social exclusion.’ We empower women and children to rebuild their lives, free from violence and fear, by providing a wide-range of life-saving and life-changing services, as well as a voice for the voiceless.

Casa Ioana accomplishes its mission primarily through its ACASĂ Programme, which provides temporary accommodation and easy access to innovative community-based social and psychological support that assists our beneficiaries to achieve their full potential. With a team of committed professionals and volunteers, we have developed good practices that enable our beneficiaries to participate and manage the activities that affect them.
