BOMFIM FOSTER HOMES
Our specialty is to take care of each child as a unique and special being, taking into account their well-being.
Specially designed to welcome siblings, Bomfim Foster Homes are two RESIDENTIAL HOUSES for children and young people up to 18 years or, if they wish and can, up to 25 years. These children and young people are in situations of danger or social vulnerability and are therefore temporarily separated from their families by order of the child and youth authorities, based on the implementation of measures to promote and protect them.
Bomfim Foster Homes are Houses of Affection, a place where every child and young person finds emotional stability, security and affection and sees the response to their individual needs assured in a context as close as possible to their family structure. Whenever possible, we try to keep brothers and sisters together, preventing them from being welcomed into different institutions. Bomfim Foster Homes are also places of (re)building lives and families, where family reunification is our primary goal in our planned intervention with the child, young person and their families.
