A children’s home in Argentina is similar to the foster care s ystem in the United
States. Children who are removed from the care of their parents live in these
homes temporarily. This home house boys and girls from ages 2 to 15. During
half the day the children are at s chool and the other half the home needs
volunteers to help with day-to-day activities. They expect committed volunteers as the children need stable influences in their lives.
