We believe that long-term alternative care for at-risk and abandoned children is best practiced within the family, not an institution.Trafficking of humans is considered one of the fastest growing criminal activities in the world today. Too often we have the mindset that this issue will only ever occur "somewhere else," when in fact it is happening right here at home. Because much of these events goes unreported, statistics are hard to collect. Some NGO's, based on reported incidents, estimate that 10,000 Canadians are trafficked domestically each year.
Our model is supported by numerous studies indicating that family care, in lieu of institutional care, provides the best possible outcomes for children with respect to their psychological development and social and economic success. Our shelter homes accommodate children caught in vulnerable situations. Each child’s physical and psychological needs are met before being restored back with their families or placed in long-term family care.
