What does it mean when we talk about a child's Well-Being?
Well-being refers to the social, emotional, and physical health that allows children and youth to be productive and successful. Information on the state of children and youth in foster care and changes in their well-being informs policymaking. Foster children are a group deserving of policy specific to them and they have a need for social indicators of their own. Child well-being measures should not focus only on preparing for a happy adult life but instead include consideration of a child’s current happiness.
Caregivers are trained on how to understand and support the well being of children and youth in their care and supported by Satori to constantly monitor and improve the child's status.
