WELCOME TO GENES FOUNDATION
We are a non profit foundation that promotes public awareness of genetic conditions
and provides direct support to the families and patients.
The vision of GENES is to provide the necessary support to children diagnosed with a genetic condition so that families can be educated in the diagnosis, become aware of available resources and therapy options that are available to them, and gain access to workshops and seminars that will give them tools to reach the main objective; which is that these children can reach their maximum potential.
Children facing these challenges need their families to be united. GENES considers it important that parents and siblings also receive the necessary emotional support needed so that everyone can face the future in the best possible way.
We will focus on four basic points inherent to any diagnosis with a genetic condition:
-Family as the primary support system to help individuals cope with their condition.
-Education specific to the diagnosis.
-Psychological / emotional well-being of both the patient and his/her family.
-Knowledge of existing resources for the different stages and situations that
arise when living with a genetic condition.
Our main focus is to share information to recently diagnosed families giving them a “Navigation Map”
of services that they might use during their journey.
Children facing these obstacles need all their families united.
We are here to give the best of us to support any family and help them face this condition together.
We are pleased to announce that GENES Foundation has expanded into other countries. As for now we have offices in Colombia and Peru. We will be opening Argentina and Paraguay by the second semester of 2019.
