Preventing Family Separation and supporting the tracing, reunification and reintegration of separated children into their families and communities
STRIVE Case study presentation from the symposium "Keeping Children and Families together through Economic Strengthening” held on March 6th , 2015 in Washington DC. It presents the example of the CCF Moldova project to prevent family separation and prevent the institutionalization of children. The case study identifies the common causes of child separation as unemployment, poverty, lack of relatives and family support networks. The children in the program were referred by child protection as abused and neglected. The program linked families to social benefits, rent assistance, and support to find employment. The program managed to succesfully and significantly reduce the number of children being institutionalized in Moldova.
