Terms Associated with Children’s Homes

As the term orphanage has fallen out of favor, it has been replaced by the more positive title of children’s home. However, the services they provide are much the same – taking care of kids who are orphans, or whose parents are unable to care for them due to death, illness, abandonment or other issues. These homes can also assist with adoption and foster home placement. Many children’s homes are run by faith-based organizations, such as the Methodist and Baptist churches. Most are nonprofit and rely on donations to provide children with education and residential services. Here are some important terms associated with children’s homes.

  • Family Study – Prior to adoption, or even in a foster care situation, some children’s homes provide education to prospective parents about the responsibilities of childcare, and making certain their home is a safe and appropriate place.
  • Caseworker – Employees of a children’s home who are responsible for individual or groups of orphaned children, that strive to make certain their needs are met.
  • Family Group Home – A situation where small groups of children are raised in a building that approximate the size and feel of a normal family home.
  • Aftercare – The support services provided to children after they leave a children’s home.
  • Council on Accreditation – An independent, non-profit accrediting organization that rates conditions and quality of care at children’s homes and similar institutions.
  • Post-Institutionalized Child – A child adopted from a children’s home that may need special care for emotional issues, developmental delays or learning disabilities.

    Homes for children can include a variety of services that address the needs of foster children, kids with special needs and homeless youths. Since there are a variety of adoption, foster and educational organizations, families should learn about the options in their areas to help them choose the agency that addresses their specific needs. A charity that focuses on providing education to children with special needs often provide services to kids with autism and other disabilities that make it difficult for them to cope in the average learning environment. Parents often do not have the skills to teach their child when they find out that he or she has a disability. By enrolling the baby or child in an organization that focuses on education programs, though, they might be able to address special needs early on in life. Orphanages are centers that care for children that do not have family members who can care for them. Their family members might have died or simply not have the ability to care for a new baby or a child. These nonprofits often focus on placement options for the children. By looking for families within the community willing to adopt a child, they can provide a better life for orphans. When exploring the various types of children’s homes in your area, you can use a search engine to locate their websites. You can also contact the charity or child welfare program to speak with a volunteer. This will help you determine which group offers the services that will work for your kids.
