Story

The Association of Parents of Special Adults is working for the benefit of the Special Adults. ADHAR has built two residential complexes in Badlapur & Nashik respectively towards fulfilling this objective.

It works in the spirit of Trusteeship and is managed by a Board of Trustees consisting 10 trustees of which 7 trustees are parents of mentally retarded children.

At present they have 320 Special Adults (234 male & 86 female) under their care. Adhar is providing them with lifelong care, training and rehabilitation facilities with the help of Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Medical Officers, Social Workers, Special Teachers, Care Takers and other Office Staff.

In the year 1990, around 25 parents of Special Adults children came together under the leadership of Adhar’s founder Late Shri M. G. Gore to find out a permanent solution for their constant worry of “After us what? Who will take care of our special children?” 

Thus Adhar Badlapur was born with the concept of a residential institution taking lifelong care and rehabilitation of Special Adults for the benefit of parents and their family. Adhar does not receive any grant or aid from the Government. It runs on parents’ contributions and donations.

Since its inception, Adhar has been extending financial subsidy to the parents depending on their economic conditions. Currently (May 2018) the average age of the Special Adults is about 45 yrs and average age of parents is around 70 yrs, which means that the parent’s contribution will reduce in future as they get older.

Why the need to raise funds
An average expense per adult is Rs.15,000 / month, out of which the parents of the adult on an average can only afford paying Rs.12,000. This leaves Adhar with a deficit of Rs.3,000 per month from each member. The total deficit including all the 320 adult members goes up to Rs. 9,60,000/ month. Hence the annual deficit is a huge amount over Rs. 1.15 CR.  

How Can You Help
Your contribution will go towards funding and managing the monthly expenses for these special needs adults.
