Transitioning to Family Care for Children

Within the global Church, a growing movement recognizes the importance of family in the life of every child and strives to ensure that children are cared for within families, rather than in institutions. Faith to Action created these three resources to come alongside churches, faith-based organizations, donors, and others who are transitioning children’s care away from residential care to care within families so that your work is aligned with biblical principles, a strong evidence base, and a growing movement within the Church that affirms the importance of family in every child’s life.

In addition to the guidance manuals, this set includes:

The Transitioning to Family Care for Children Online Training provides an overview of the key concepts and steps that are important to a successful transition process. The training utilizes short videos of presentations and interviews with transition experts and practitioners, as well as downloadable activities, guidance, and resources.

The online Tool Kit features over 200 quality resources and useful tools to support your transitioning efforts. It is easy to use, organized by specific topics within the transitioning care process and includes country-specific information.
