Offer a stable and reassuring accommodation solution to the child before considering reintegration into the family.
Temporary centers welcome children for a period not exceeding 6 months. The child is provided with a stable environment and informal education, while waiting to be reintegrated into the family or to another structure adapted to his or her needs.
Temporary center admittance:
- First stage: the child is identified through day or night outreach sessions led by social workers in the streets of the city, or through local authorities.
- Second stage: the child is admitted into one of the centers with the approval of the authorities and legal guardians.
- Third stage: from the arrival of the child, for a period ranging from 3 to 6 months: assessment of the family situation with a view to reintegrating the child into their family.
- Fourth stage: family reintegration with material and financial support, or transfer into one of our long-term structures: protection center or family house.
- Literacy and numeracy
- Leisure and social activities
- Psychological support
- Family assessment
- Family reintegration with continued support
