As Armenia continues its focus on deinstitutionalization and family preservation, Mer Hooys strives to
reunify program participants with their families when possible, providing family location services and
family counseling. Our professional staff works with these families on their plans to support their girls’
continuing education, psychological and spiritual health and well-being. The reunified families continue
to receive support from Mer Hooys staff as needed for one year following reunification. Furthering our
goal of family preservation and reunification where appropriate, Mer Hooys strives to admit
sisters to the program, and provide families of program participants professional
counseling and, where possible, assistance in finding work.
