We all need help from time to time
To stop the threat of abuse and to minimize the stress these parents are facing, we offer to take the children for up to 72 hours. The children are kept safe at the Kottage while their parents, relieved of parenting responsibilities for a short time, identify and implement plans to solve or mitigate the issue of the crisis. Parents in crisis who bring their children to the Kottage are met with support and encouragement.
We help parents develop a plan to cope with their current crisis situation. Less than 3% of parents and children who participate in the Kids Kottage program need government child protection intervention.
