This program is designed to provide temporary shelter to abused, neglected, or abandoned children where it is unsafe for them to stay in their homes, relatives, or communities. It is also an immediate response to children to temporarily pull them out from their traumatic experience to allow them to heal, process, and recover. The temporary residential care has been running for more than 18 years now, servicing to more than 200 abused children over the years.
The program implements the multi-disciplinary approach to provide more comprehensive case management services to child victims of abuse, especially sexual abuse. The multi-disciplinary team is composed of social worker, counsellor, psychologist, teacher, house parents, lawyer, and medical doctor/nurses. The social worker takes responsibility for an “structured arrangement” of services to heal, rehabilitate, care for or seek change for the child victim. Each case typically involves three stages: assessment, intervention/treatment, and recovery. The social worker and the multi-disciplinary team conduct a weekly case conference to discuss, assess, and propose individualized treatment strategies for each child.
