Two new members join our General Assembly: Lydia Vereschildt, who accompanies the operative team in family support and community strengthening, and Patricia Herrmann, who accompanies us in the legal area.
DCF works with the Ministry of Social and Economic Inclusion and UNICEF in the design and implementation of Alternative Family and Community Based Care, such as family support, kinship, and foster care. Poema Carrión, ex-director of MIES, joins the DCF team. In 2020, a proposal for legal reforms and a handbook for institutional care is developed. The design of a new service that accompanies young people starts. Parallel to that, the co-construction of the National Strategy of Deinstitutionalization of children and adolescents is initiated.
“DCF has been and still is, a foundation with many dreams and hopes, which co-creates new realities. It is a dynamic institution that innovates every year and seeks for more children and adolescents to live with their families, the place they deserve and belong to.”
Diego Poma – Director/Coach DCF
