Sverdlovsk region creates family-assistance systems

According to a recent report from the government of the Sverdlovsk region, local leaders have created an assistance system for families that face difficult socioeconomic situations.

The region recently received encouraging news about a positive trend in preventing parents from abandoning their children. This was achieved through interagency cooperation, social institutions and nongovernmental organization projects.

In the past few years, the Middle Urals developed social policy to deal with problems that lead to homelessness or child abandonment. There are now complex social service centers that provide families free and confidential legal support and counseling. There is also a helpline for parents, adolescents and children facing difficult times.

Victims of domestic violence are also welcome to call the helpline, as a particular concern is for children and women who are suddenly forced to live on the streets.

Sverdlovsk's governor and local leaders constantly monitor the region for problems involving the care for orphans and abandoned children.
