Residential Child Care Service

Service Introduction

Families are the core units of a society and have their significant roles in the stability of individuals and the society. When families have difficulties, parents are unable to take care of their children temporarily or permanently, the society has the responsibility to take care of the children, so as to ensure the welfare of the children are secured. 

When children have to receive out of home care, family type of care should be considered first so that children can continue to enjoy stable and happy family lives with healthy development.

Service Objectives

We provide family care or family-like care and nurture to children whose families are having difficulties taking care of them until the children have long term welfare arrangement (such as family reunion, joining an adoptive family or living independently).
