We believe that whenever possible it is best that children grow up in their own families, but recognize that sometimes it is not always possible. Alternative care environments are available for children and youth in need, such as victims or those at risk of sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, or those waiting to be reintegrated with their families.

Alternative Care options at M’Lop Tapang include:

  • Transitional Home that offers safe, temporary shelter
  • Foster care with a local family
  • Independent Living house for older youth and young adults

All children and youth in Alternative Care are provided with a full range of M’Lop Tapang services and are followed up regularly with our Social Workers.
