The unique thing about the projects is the research which was made when they were first started – researchers from the organization searched for answers of the question: “Why do children go to social homes?”. For the first time, the approach of multidisciplinary teams supporting children and families before and during the family crisis is implemented. The projects covered around 900 children.
