Casa en Comunidad: Maestro Cares

Aldeas Infantiles SOS Ecuador
Quito, Ecuador

Maestro Cares Foundation supports Aldeas Infantiles SOS Ecuador by funding the recently completed construction of Casa en Comunidad, an interim home for abused, abandoned and neglected children.

This Casa en Comunidad is a temporary placement and care facility for children in a protective state who have been separated from their families. During this temporary placement, Aldeas Infantiles SOS Ecuador seeks to preserve, improve and/or strengthen family ties, prevent abandonment and seek the re-insertion of the child or adolescent into his/her biological family.

Aldeas Infantiles SOS is the largest international organization for direct care of children, present in 135 countries. They provide assistance to children without adequate parental care by giving them alternative families and a nurturing environment. They also ensure siblings of at-risk families stay together in these foster homes. The goal of the program is to strengthen families and keep them together while focusing on youth development.
