About us

The project has been supporting adoptive and foster parents as well as those who are considering adoption or foster care for more than 20 years due to the cooperation of the Tereza Maxová Foundation and the Adoption and Foster Care Centre. Our main goal of the project is to provide valid and relevant information.

The project consists of three parts - the website, which is an information portal containing all important information about types of foster family care, the information booklet Guide to Adoption and Foster Care, where the issue of substitute family care is presented in a clear and comprehensive manner; the brochure is free to download and can be ordered free of charge, information phone line +420 725 756 505 of the project, which provides quick advice or information directly from experts.
