RECEPTION HOMES

“The only thing necessary for tranquility in the world is that every child grows up happy.”
                                                                                                              – Chief Dan George 

A Reception Home is a place of safety for children recovered from various social vulnerabilities (child marriage, child beggary, child labour, child trafficking, abused children, missing children, runaways, etc.) under the age of 18 years. The home caters immediate comfort to children in need thanks to a good child-friendly environment which calm them after traumas.

In this case the shelter is temporary. This means a safe place where the child can stay shortly – usually maximum 2 months – until the legal situation of the child is clear and a good solution for the life of him/her is found.

Our Reception Homes are strictly linked with CWC (Child Welfare Committee). CWC is an Authority body with judicial power: they deeply investigate about the child situation during the period while the child is rescued in Reception Home, until when they will be able to decide the future of the child.

What happen to children when they leave Reception Homes?

After the period in Reception Home, the decision about the child situation made by CWC can be: the child come back to the family (if he/she has a family and the family can really be able to take care of the child; and if it is safe for the child to come back in the family) or, alternatively and in many cases, the child needs a safe home and good shelter to live. Our Children Homes are made for that purpose.

In other cases we find the way to help the child directly with the family (for example with our community projects).
