Forms of foster care and hospitality

This subsection will introduce and briefly describe various forms of foster care and hospitality. According to each project, to its goals, and to its intended duration, the parts involved may opt for specific solutions geared to individual needs.

Prior to each foster placement, the Social Services will draft a placement plan emphasizing the best interest of the child, and stipulating, among other things, its right to maintain and develop close ties to its birth family.
