This resource manual is dedicated to the children and families of Bulgaria whose lives have been touched, and will continue to be touched, by the impact of the ‘Take Me Home 2’ pilot project (2002-2005), which sought to advance models of alternative community-based care and reduce institutionalization. The vision of such community-based services included developing alternatives sensitive to the needs and problems of children and families at risk, avoiding separation and institutionalization by receiving support from social workers experienced in practical work. The manual is intended primarily for Child Protection Department social workers, the staff of institutions and their managers.
