ABOUT FREEDOM GATE GREECE

"Freedom Gate Greece" was founded in June of 2012 with a goal of fighting every form of social exclusion as well as promoting the psychosocial support of vulnerable groups.

Our actions focus on the support of prisoners’ familiar environment with special care to underage children of the family, on rehabilitation programs for juvenile offenders, on support programs for incarcerated parents and on research.

Having already developed connections with organisations such as Eurochips (European network for children with imprisoned parents in which we are members) and Eurochild (in which we are also members), which have great experience in similar actions, we have designed our interventions using evidence-based practices, adjusted to Greek reality. We hope that our organisation will contribute actively and essentially to the fight of social inequality, injustice and prejudice that exists for so many centuries.

Considering the disruption that the imprisonment of a person induces to the family, we hope through psychosocial support programs to provide the family with a different point of view; a “new life” that differs from the shame, the isolation, the stigmatization and the resignation of a family re-connection.

Freedom Gate Greece along with other Non-Profit Organizations, with approx. 100 participants, participates as a partner in the Erasmus + KA1 program (KA105-833D9610-EN) in the project: "Trauma Healing and Community Resilience Development"). 
Project Coordinator: Feminenza International https://www.feminenza.org/

The program involves non-governmental organizations from: Greece, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Netherlands, Palestine, Romania, Turkey, United Kingdom
The participants, mainly youth workers, are often the first line of informal support available for many on the edge of civil society: refugees; homeless; victims of conflict, gender-based violence, sex trafficking; in poverty; living with trauma, mentally ill. In some settings, they are the only doorway to rehabilitation, warmth, and hope to such souls.
More than 64% came with first-hand experience of personal trauma or STS (Secondary Traumatic Stress). The latter, more commonly known as “compassion fatigue”, can have the same symptoms as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder): depression, fatigue, anxiety, impulsive reactivity, outbursts of anger, sense of loss of control, desperation, incompetency, trouble sleeping.

This project prepares participants to understand STS, how to prevent it from developing as well as the self-care measures needed to step out of the stop situations that STS presents. It prepares the participants to be mindful of, and skilled with:
The role of Gender in STS and trauma
Understanding and managing fear and anxiety
The place of forgiveness and letting go of the past
Building awareness of STS in the workplace, managing STS risks, and instigating a culture that supports self-care
Reflective processes which develop resilience
Also gain the ability to recognize and monitor STS risk and acquire the tools and ability to prevent STS.
Freedom Gate Greece participates in the training with four people and also will host the live meeting that will take place in Greece.
