Looking inside the residences of children and adolescents whose rights have been violated, the groups that generate most challenges in relation to the management of the coexistence are, precisely, the adolescents; the more we can say about the young adults of 18 years or more, the most have not completed their secondary education, and adding to the difficulties, there are no original family networks or surrogates in which we can visualize a possible successful outcome.

At age eighteen, she left the Hogar and for six years, we lost track of each other. At age twenty-five, we reconnected. She came to live at the House of Hope (HOH).
The HOH is a home for young women coming out of hogares and other undesirable situations. Continue reading Claudia my Chilean daughter
