HOME OF HOPE
The Home of Hope provides temporary residential care for children.
The Home of Hope believes that the family is the best place for the holistic development and care of a child and we are committed to protecting each child’s right to be nurtured and raised in a loving family. We seek to take a proactive approach to scaling down the use of residential care and assisting children within the context of their families.
HOW WE DO THIS
Develop Family-based alternative care such as kinship care and foster care options for children who require out-of-parental care
Provide high quality short-term care as a last resort and temporary option in cases where family based care is not in the best interests of certain children.
Assist long-term residential care programs to undergo deinstitutionalization, which is the process of closing down long-term residential care programs and developing alternate community-based services for families and children.
Develop reintegration and reunification programs to assist children in residential care to reintegrate back into their communities and be reunited with their families (in cases where it is appropriate).
Develop child-centred community development programs that assist whole communities to meet the needs of their own children.
