People are born, grow, and eventually become elderly. During those periods when people are unable to take care of themselves, they are supported by others around them, particularly their families. Today, however, the functionality of families has weakened and additional support is necessary, especially for care for children and the Elderly. Without support from society, family bonds will be overburdened, and when their limits are exceeded accidents and other misfortunes can occur. Our mission is supporting the formation of strong family ties so that people can live safely and with peace of mind.
When Tama Dôhôkai was formed in 1946, it was a period of confusion and disorder in Japan. It was at this time that the organization created a dorm for women and their children with the aim of protecting them and maintaining the ties between these vulnerable members of society. The content of the organization's social welfare activities has changed over time as society has undergone major transformations, but this does not mean that people in need of assistance are no longer present.
The spirit of the organization's founding era has been handed down with pride, and today we help those with the greatest need for public assistance and work to improve the lives of children and the elderly. We make steady efforts to enable all people to live normal lives with a sense of security and infuse systems and programs with vitality to enhance public welfare and improve communities. To achieve these goals, we actively undertake pioneering development work.
The members of Tama Dohokai adopt the four beliefs of founder and former Chief director Ima Nakajo as our guiding policies.
