In 2006, TACT Hellas undertook the creation and management of a group home in Ioannina for fifteen people with mental illness and disabilities. Thus the “New Beginning” home was born. This home became a safe haven which offered security and support to individuals suffering from mental anguish and physical disabilities by encouraging social integration and community participation. To this day, the home continues to operate successfully, raising public and social awareness through various programs, whenever funding allows. In 2007-2008, TACT Hellas successfully undertook two major projects in Athens and Ioannina with the support of the Ministry of Employment and Social Security to promote equal opportunity.

In the summer of 2011, TACT Hellas became the official representative for BEST BUDDIES in Greece. BEST BUDDIES is a non profit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
