A Continuum of Care for Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Amanda Cox, Sarah Gesiriech, Kerry Olson, Krystel Porter - Faith to Action Initiative

A Continuum of Care provides an overview of a range of alternative care options for children who have been separated from parental care. In keeping with research and evidence-based guidance on the importance of family in the life of a child, the continuum places a high priority on family care while also recognizing the role that temporary residential care and small group homes can play in the spectrum of options to meet individual situations and needs.
