Challenge

In Taiwan, some parents need to leave home long to work for living so they couldn't take care of their children in person; some parents depend on temporary works so that they have meager income. In these cases, children may be sent to their relatives or live in residential placement facilities in other cities, which keeps children and parents apart. Leaving home increases the fear in children's hearts and may cause psychological distortions and trauma, end up in deviant behaviors in the future.

Solution

By setting family-like children care centers in Taiwan communities, we try to help these vulnerable children to be taken good care of and live in their familiar communities; besides, they can go back home or meet their parents during holidays. Protect the children in high-risk families by let them grow up in their familiar environment, not only decrease children's insecure feeling of living but also maintain their family relationship. We holds family evens for strengthening their connection.

Long-Term Impact

It helps rebuild family systems and relationships, provides parents with good parenting education, family support/ family events, children with self-reliance training, talent learning, tutoring, self-exploration, and helps children to be taken good care of in the communities. The funds will be used for children's meals, daily supplies, household necessities, education materials, books, etc. to provide children with abundant and proper resources in care; with a total of 600 children benefited.
