Transform Your Model of Care

Research and scripture agree that children grow best in families. Because of this, governments, NGOs and donors are urging traditional orphanages to reunify children with their families.

Family reunification makes sense, but it’s not easy to implement. You may be feeling the pressure to transition your model of care or have been experiencing challenges in this process.
We understand.

This course is designed to help you to identify barriers to transition, and get equipped to safely and responsibly reintegrate children into families. By the end of this course, you will learn how to turn your “how” questions into “wow” solutions. 

Together, we can help more children journey home.
