Moving Beyond Institutions: Supporting Independent Living in Europe

Published: June 2017


Simona lived in an institution in Romania for 34 years, where she endured poor living conditions and unnecessary restrictions. Three years ago, Simona moved into a regular house in the town of Mihailesti. She now has friends, a job, the ability to make her own decisions about her life—freedom, in a word. This short film follows the stories of Simona and others who have flourished since leaving institutions and finding a place to call home.
