Foster Service

Three people smile for the camera

Foster Service for children with disabilities is a social service where an individual age 18 or younger is placed in a family other than his or her biological family.

This person or family, called a foster parent or foster family, provides services in their own home in a family environment. Just like biological parents, the foster parents provide support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and have the same duties as biological parents.

To become a foster family, families should file an application with the district Social Assistance and Family Protection Department (SAFPD). Applicants will need to be assessed and trained before they are approved by the Committee for the Protection of Children in Difficulty.

Three Foster Services were originally developed by the Community for All-Moldova Program to promote social inclusion for children with disabilities in the districts of Orhei, Ialoveni, and Cantemir. Each service hosts three children with disabilities who are supported by a foster family and program specialists to go to school or kindergarten in the community.
