Our support center for persons with developmental difficulties creates a friendly, safe and relaxing environment in which people can live more comfortably within the local community.
Our dream is to create a community in which disabilities do not matter, in which the categories of person needing support and the provider disappear. We want to create a community where people can exercise their innate creative abilities through making things, sharing the joy of creating and collaborating.
We hope to demonstrate the potential for creative social welfare programs through providing an environment which allows people to support each other, to connect with each other and create.
Our work at Shobu consists of three programs:
These programs are related and feed into one another. We are able to develop new approaches that enable persons with developmental difficulties to build stronger relationships with wider society by drawing out their creative abilities.
While making full use of Shobu`s specialized nature and management techniques, we work together with the family members of our clients to consider what the best care program to enable them to live a decent human life would be.
