We would like to present the project "Children's Homes" as a new approach to social work with neglectful families in Barcelona. Its main objective is to help social services in cases of families who are in an early stage of disfunctionality. The aim is to reintegrate within a short period of time children who are in residential care and thus prevent their institutionalization. We work closely with families and social services. Our specialized team (psychologist and pedagogue) offer solutions for difficulties found in the family. Inside the homes, families relate with the support of social educators, to improve personals skills and tools to develop their own parental competencies. The social educator helps the family improve their competencies and motivates change. The family worker helps the family develop parental skills suitable for young children. Currently we help more than 110 families and their children.
