Every child should grow up in a healthy and safe environment with love and structure. Sometimes the situation at home is complicated, which makes it temporarily impossible for a child to live at home.
Initially, Youth Care will look at the possibilities within the family’s network first. If there is no alternative within the family, the child can be placed in a foster family. This form of care is called foster care and is most similar to a natural family situation which is the most comfortable for a child. Foster parents then take over the care for the child for a short or longer period of time.
“At first, I had trouble with someone else raising my son. But now I see that he is doing better due to the good collaboration between Youth Care and the foster family. With a listening ear, parenting tips and guidance, we will soon be able to offer him peace and security and allow him to live safely at home again.”
