Caritas Satu Mare
Caritas Satu Mare is a not-for-profit organization established in 1990, which later on became member of the Caritas Confederation, an organization including ten other similar organizations from Romania. In the very beginning, right after the revolution from December 1989, the main mission of the organization was to distribute humanitarian aid sent from abroad, but over the years, in its endeavor to answer the social needs of people in difficult situations, Caritas Satu Mare has developed and diversified its activity.
Currently, Caritas Satu Mare is carrying out complex social assistance programs with 39 institutions from Satu Mare and Maramures counties, programs grouped in four domains: socio-educational programs for children and youth, programs for the disabled, programmes for the elderly and social-charitable programmes. Through these programmes, Caritas Satu Mare has become an agent of social change at the local level. For this purpose, Caritas Satu Mare promotes the most modern concepts and trends of social policy, provides professional services with the help of its 203 employees with an average age of 35, intervenes promptly and efficiently in case of natural calamities, and encourages involvement of local communities in the development of the region.
In order to achieve its goals, Caritas Satu Mare has created solid partnerships, both with the local and county authorities and with other non-governmental organizations from the country and abroad.
Caritas Satu Mare complies with the ethical and deontological norms defined by national and international professional organizations operating in the field of social assistance, as well as with those enforced by the legislation in effect and the Caritas Internationalis network.
Trying to stay permanently informed about the latest professional trends in the field of social work (social assistance, pedagogy, medical care, psychology, etc.), and their implementation in our own activities, represent the priorities of Caritas Satu Mare. Thus, we can provide high quality services, which benefit everyone involved. The implementation and continuous improvement of the quality management system represents the guarantee in this respect.
