Family care projects require further certification to you achieve quality and desired outcomes of your efforts. Projects are required to have at least a four star rating on Global Family's 5 Star Evaluation System.
The following five criteria are used to rate your family care project.
A home study and background check on each child is undertaken to ensure that no pre-existing family option is available.
The relationships that children have with primary volunteer caregivers foster significant positive emotional and psychological results. Therefore,caregivers should work out of a sense of compassion and call rather than for financial benefit.
Caregivers commit to long-term service so that children do not have to suffer the trauma of continual re-bonding with parental figures. When a caregiving unit is established it is kept together until the children grow to adulthood without adding or removing siblings.
Each family unit should house no more than ten children and should have it's own sleeping, bathing, eating and socializing spaces as well as a separate, designated caregiver.
Each child should receive individual care and attention. Both the spirit as well as the daily routine of the home should reveal a fun, loving, nurturing environment where children receive structure, encouragement, praise, consistency and good role models from their caregivers and older siblings. Children should also receive adequate levels of nutrition, education and health care.
