Hands and Feet Project operates under the jurisdiction of Haiti’s Child Protective Services (called IBESR). Whenever HAFP is approached by IBESR about placing a child in our care, we collaborate with their representatives to determine the best course of action for each child.

If all family and community care options are not viable, IBESR will place the child(ren) in our Residential Care program. Here, in our Children’s Villages, we create family, where children will live, sleep, eat, and play in family homes. We only utilize our Residential Care program as the best, last resort.
