Short description:

The foster care project "Accept Me", which is a continuation of the "I Have a Family" initiative, is aimed at extending the scope of the social service. The aim is to provide an alternative form of raising children at risk, as well as to provide them with a family environment for rearing. Within the framework of the project, the children accommodated in foster families are encouraged to take care of their development, to take them out of the risky Environment and working with them in a family environment. The foster parents are voluntary and professional. The main element of the project is the introduction of a new regional model of management and provision of the foster care social service. The overall scope of provision of the social care service "Foster Care" is implemented by the municipality - a district town. Social workers with a job in the district town are responsible for all applicants and foster families on their territory as well as those from other municipalities in the area.
