Group homes or individual family based care Blog?
Depending upon individual circumstance foster children can either be placed in the care of a foster family or an institution. It is important that children are kept out of harmful situations. In some cases, traditional foster families are not available. In these cases, children will be placed into the care of an institution.
Institutional care centres take on many forms and roles. This makes it hard to effectively evaluate their efficiency collectively. However, most critics agree that foster children in traditional family based care benefit more.
It takes them less out of their comfort zone and they feel less like a statistic. Unfortunately, this is not always possible.
