Family Psychosocial Services
Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) was an American professor of psychology who played a major role in laying the theoretical foundations of the “humanistic psychology,”
Maslow understood that there was much more to being healthy than merely showing the absence of any sickness. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs has often been represented, in a hierarchical pyramid, with five levels. The four levels (lower-order needs) are measured as physiological needs, while the top level of the pyramid is considered growth needs. The lower-level requirements must be satisfied before higher-order needs can influence behavior.
One of Saba Charitable Foundation’s funding priorities is to keep a family growing, thriving and healthy. The Foundation supports projects that meet the basic needs of families so that they may have the basic necessities to feel safe to then aspire to achieve other greatness in our society. The Foundation provides support for programs in family nutrition, water, shelter and other psychosocial services.
Saba Charitable Foundation is committed to providing support for emergency aid to agencies and organizations that manage unexpected natural disasters, epidemics/pandemics, and other types of unforeseen emergencies. Examples of support to agencies or organizations include:
