The civic association Romodrom o.p.s. was founded in 2001 as a voluntary non-governmental non-profit organization with the aim of helping mainly Roma people. However, we soon found out that the issue of social exclusion does not only concern the Roma population, but is a much broader problem and affects much larger groups of the population.
Our main goal is to help these people find solutions in their difficult life situations and strengthen their competencies in managing their destinies. For this purpose, we provide social services and operate social projects. We are specialised in field programs, social rehabilitation, and social activation services for families with children and professional social counselling. Our social projects mainly focus on debt counselling, employment promotion, housing, childcare or education. We are based in Prague but provide help to people in 8 out of 14 regions of the Czech Republic
