Dynamics in our home are determined by several factors, not the least by the personalities, challenges and difficulties each child represents. The combined dynamics contribute heavily to the success of each child that is placed into one of our homes (families). For that reason these existing dynamics are taken into consideration during any admission process to increase the probability that 'quality long term care' can be provided, without interruption, for the benefit of each child. Our focus is on the family athmospere, structure and environment. Relationships within our family environment are being built and are, from our perspective, extended after discharge. We do not replace the biological parents. However, we make every effort to create a family athmosphere in which the children can feel safe, accepted, protected, positively stimulated and encouraged but not necessarily judged. In our family we are guided by moral and ethical values that may contribute to icrease each child's and future adult's self-esteem. A greater self-esteem can increase the future adult's ability to contribute positively to our society. All aspects of our program have the same goal: 'THE WELL-BEING AND SAFETY OF EACH CHILD WHILE DEVELOPING A LEVEL OF INTEGRITY THAT IS BENEFICIAL TO THE CHILD AND SOCIETY. IT IS DONE IN A FAMILY ENVIRONMENT THAT THE CHILD MAY SOME DAY TRY TO RE-CREATE IN HIS/HER OWN LIFE FOR THEIR CHILDREN'S BENEFIT'
