Did you know that, on average, 80% of children living in orphanages have a living parent who, with the right support, could be able to care for them?
Homecoming is a project run by Home for Good with the aim of inspiring and equipping individual Christians and churches across the UK to promote family-based care for children around the world.
Like Home for Good, we believe that children belong in families, not institutions, and so we want to see families supported and communities strengthened so that vulnerable children can thrive in the love and commitment of a family for life.
Home for Good is working in partnership with the ReThink Orphanages coalition of charities including Save the Children, UNICEF UK, Better Care Network, Lumos and Hope and Homes for Children.
It’s imperative that we address the over-use of institutionalisation for the estimated 8 million children that are growing up in orphanages, children’s villages, shelters and institutional care that have a parent that could care for them if supported. Keeping a child at home costs between 6-10 times less than keeping them institutionalised.
Let’s get kids back where they belong: Home. 🏡
