Family Based Care Means….

We Start with THEIR Families

Sometimes all a family needs to stay together is a little support.  We start by trying to preserve existing and extended families.  Watch our Kinship Care Video to see a powerful example of family preservation.

But Some Children Need Foster Families

We recruit and train families to provide a loving home for children who just don’t have any other option.  Watch our foster care video to see what that looks like in real life.  

It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village

We place children within close-knit communities to help bring change to the entire community — including vulnerable children.  This helps us to address broader needs like education and sanitation at the same time.  

Along for the Journey

Placement is the easy part, then comes real life.  Our team of dedicated local staff walk alongside these children and families through the long process of growth and discovery.   

But does it work?  

For years, we wanted to know the answer to that same exact question.    Watch this video and tell us what you think.
