The establishment of the Workshop "PANAGIA ELEOUSA" 26 years ago, by Maria Tsoutsou, mother of George Tsoutsos, for young people with intellectual and related disabilities, is an indigenous, social work of sensitivity and love for our fellow humans with the wounded intelligence .
This endeavor was bold and ambitious. However, she managed with struggles to sensitize the local communities of our prefecture in disability issues, to convert the stigma, the suspicion and exclusion into acceptance, trust and solidarity.
Nowadays, we aim to maintain a distinct position in the Greek and European mainstream.
We continue our person-centered orientation by ensuring the respect and dignity of people with intellectual and related disabilities, by upgrading their life quality with innovative approaches and by the continuous improvement of the provided service, for a better future.
Our vision is the belief in principles, values, rights to human dignity and humane society.
With the help of the Church, the State and the Society, respecting the past, we continue unabated our struggle with ethics, credibility and sincerity proving that in this place there is solidarity, excess of love and humanity.
