Belonging in families – Psalm 68:6

Child in Family Focus

Established in October 2012, Child in Family Focus is driven by the need to bridge the advocacy and awareness gaps evident in the alternative care arena in Kenya. The organization is committed to raising awareness about disadvantaged children in need of permanent, safe and loving homes and eliminating the barriers that hinder them from realizing their basic need of a family.

The organization engages, enlightens, and empowers children’s institutions and families for life changing outcomes. At Child in Family Focus – Kenya, all is done to God’s glory and honor. Pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phil 3:14)

We are conscious of the changes in Kenya’s governance structure and are confident that the devolved system of government brings an enabling environment for our work in the counties and we remain committed to growing and meeting the alternative care advocacy needs in the country.

Organization Structure of Child in Family Focus - Kenya

Since inception in October 2012, the organization has had to make do with a skeletal workforce that continues to grow. The CFFK team ardently believe that institutional care should only be used as a short-term last resort for children when all other options have been exhausted.

A board of directors comprising seven members offers oversight, checks and counterchecks, forecasting, and advises on amongst other matters; operational efficiency, policies and procedures, legal matters as well as compliance with Government regulations and institutions.

CFFK’s position on Children’s homes

CFFK fully appreciates the important work that Children’s Homes continue to do in providing what is in many instances, the only available care for many children, even as we promote their transition to new responsibilities delivering alternative family-care.

We believe Children’s homes are in the best position to carry out the work of family tracing and child case management alongside the Directorate of Children’s Services and other partners as part of the important step of seeking and preparing a permanent family-placement for children.

CFFK provides technical support to build the capacity of Children’s Homes to deliver on this essential function to re-direct children from institutional care to living in families.
