The program helps in situations where children are at risk due to factors including
- Families experiencing loss or disruption or illness or feeling isolated
- Parents who are having difficulties managing children
- Families involved in a situation of child abuse or domestic violence
The program provides a positive link for a family with another Jewish family in the community. It also provides a different experience of family and relationships for children who may have had many difficulties in their own family.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between JewishCare and The Benevolent Society has been signed to ensure that Jewish children who require out-of-home care are given the maximum opportunity to be placed
As part of the MOU The Benevolent Society will provide information and conduct training for potential Jewish foster carers as well as assisting JewishCare to assess the appropriateness of applicants who have expressed the desire to be part of various foster care related programs.
