Foster Care Support Center

Foster care is a way to protect and support children who are unable to live with their parents, for reasons of child abuse or financial hardship, by providing them with another home. The Foster Care Support Center thoroughly investigates and discusses each foster child’s individual characteristics and background to choose the most suitable foster home, ensuring the healthy growth of children. Various programs are in place to assist children settling in their foster homes, and Good Neighbors closely oversees and assists with the whole process up to the return to their homes. Professional educational and counseling sessions are also run for potential foster families. Good Neighbors has been operating the Ulsan Foster Care Support Center since 2003, having been referred by the local government.
