This programme is seen as the backbone for care at SOS Children Villages Jordan. The programme consists of a community made of family houses, where each house is led by a mother who provides care and love for 5 to 7 children.
An SOS family is similar to a biological family in terms of variety of ages and gender. In the family house the children are raised as brothers and sisters until the age of 14. At this age the youth moves from the family house to a youth house. The youth live at the youth house until the age of 18.
