Voices on the project

In my view, foster parents take on an important social task, because they offer children and adolescents a second home, protection and security when their own parents cannot take care of them temporarily or in the long term. Being a foster family is associated with challenges and certainly some hurdles, but every family that opens up here offers a child the chance to grow up in a family environment. That is why every new foster family is invaluable.

Ursel Wolfgramm, CEO of PARITÄTISCHER Baden-Württemberg

Enabling children and young people from difficult backgrounds and with stressful experiences to live in a family is a great gift. Foster parents not only open their hearts, but also their doors to young people who are not lucky enough to grow up in an intact family. Children need adults who support them with care and responsibility in their development. This commitment requires courage, responsibility – and love. I would therefore be happy to support the “It fits.” Campaign and cordially invite you to consider the idea of ​​giving a foster child a home.

Manne Lucha, Minister for Social Affairs and Integration Baden-Württemberg

Foster families are great because they enjoy life with children and take on the task without knowing whether it ends tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or never. Foster families are communities of growing together, because the right path only becomes visible in everyday life. Foster families are real scouts for life paths.

Foster families are important because they can offer children and adolescents security and a family model that promotes development

Dr. Jürgen Strohmaier, Head of Unit Local Association for Youth and Social Affairs Baden-Württemberg

Foster families are characterized by the fact that they can give children of stressed or overwhelmed parents an alternative home in a family setting.

Dr. Susanne Heynen, youth welfare officer city Stuttgart

Being a foster family suits us because the relationship is what matters, not where you come from.

Full-time care

The placement of a child in full-time care can be temporary or permanent. In principle, it is always possible to return to the family of origin.

For children who cannot live with their parents temporarily or permanently, there is the option of accommodation in a foster family or with carers. Accommodation is a form of help for education outside the parental home. The legislator speaks of full-time care, which is regulated in § 33 SGB VIII. There are many reasons for being placed in a foster family. In some cases, living conditions such as illness, separation, single parenting, personal crisis, excessive demands or an addiction problem make the situation of the parents more difficult. This can lead to inadequate upbringing, care and care and, in some cases, to the well-being of the child. During this time, the children and adolescents experience a reliable family environment through the foster family, which guarantees them security, security, care and support. During the period of accommodation, parents have the opportunity to stabilize their personal situation and improve the conditions of upbringing with them. Depending on this as well as on the personal ties of the child, the duration of the placement in the foster family is different. That is why full-time care provides for both the temporary and the permanent way of life. When deciding whether to return to the family of origin or to remain permanently in the foster family, the particularities of the individual case must be weighed up and clarified with all those involved. Therefore, advice and support for foster families as well as advice and support for the family of origin are important. These are ensured by the youth welfare office and the independent providers of youth welfare.

education site

Education centers are professional foster families in which one parent has an educational education. These take care of children and young people who are particularly affected by development.

They offer the child or adolescent a longer-term stay in a family setting. The legal basis for educational institutions is § 33 SGB VIII, sentence 2 "Suitable forms of family care must be created for children and adolescents with special development problems".
In this context, educational institutions are also called "special educational full-time care". Parenting places can also be offered according to § 34 SGB VIII through home education in a domestic community. The publicly commissioned education takes place in both offers in the home environment within the family. The professional competence of the childcare center lies on the one hand in the pedagogical qualifications of a caregiver and on the other hand that a freelance youth welfare agency takes over the selection of applicants, the placement of children or adolescents and the regular professional advice and support for this individual and intensive childcare assistance.
