In addition to our family preservation services for children in adversity, we also noticed the needs of parenting support resources. Therefore, we started to run #Taipei City Child Care Resource Center in 1995, providing resources and support for parents, caregivers and childcare institutes. We also devote ourselves in creating parent-child services that have our characteristics. For instance, we undertake the running of government’s #Parent-Child Centers in metropolitan areas. Moreover, we created #Welcome to Our Comfort Zone Services to help parents and children find their common good in life via different parents/ parent-child courses.
From our practices we discovered that families with children aged 0-3 years desperately need support and assistance, and it was also the critical moment to implement the third level child protection prevention services. Therefore, we adopt our successful modules from Parent-Child Centers and Comfort Zone in the creation of #Parent Support Community Service Centers, which aim to reach families in social housing and remote communities. We hope to share the childcare stress from the parents with less resources and elevate the quality of care their children receive.
