Care Transition Accelerator Academy

Training Leaders to Support the Transition from Residential to Family Care

A 2-year certificate program combining in-person instruction, remote learning, and mentored practicum with some of the world’s leaders in deinstitutionalization.

Scripture and science are clear: children need healthy families to thrive.  Around the world, there is a growing movement of transitioning residential programs to family care.  These programs often have competent staff, committed donors, and strong relationships in the communities where they serve, making them ideal candidates to support care within families.  However, program leaders need support from coaches with expertise in the process of transitioning a program to family care. Currently, far fewer individuals are equipped for this role than are needed.

This is where the Care Transition Accelerator Academy students come in!

Be a critical part of the world movement to see children in families.

This program gives you the tools and expertise you need to support organizations in their transition from residential to family care.
