Hogar


The "Santa Clara" Home for Children, or hogar, is an institute for adoption and transition. This means that it receives children for a limited period of time, waiting to find a family who can take care of them. Unfortunately, many children have been living in the hogar for years. It is very important that the children can find a family of their own, so that they can be properly stimulated. This is fundamental for the littlest ones; to have all of the attention and love that the hogar, even one with a family-like atmosphere like "Santa Clara", cannot adequately provide.

All the children enter the hogar through the Court of Family or the Court of the Work, with a letter in which the Court asks to the hogar "Santa Clara" the acceptance of the boy (or girl). In the same way, all the adoptions are made with the sole intervention of the same Court. The hogar is the caretaker or of the kid until parents, relatives or tutors are located.
