Starting in 2015, SOS has been providing a service where children without parental care are able to stay at SOS parents´ home. In this case, a SOS parent is not required to relocate to an pre-assigned habitat but may provide the service at their own home. There are support personnel such as social workers and psychologists available at request to these families living outside of the SOS villages. The parents of the families are trained with various preparatory and supportive courses.
