Children with inadequate or no parental care are at particular risk; when the child’s family cannot provide sufficient care or abandons them. HOPE protects their rights of survival, development, protection and participation through residential care and aftercare support. The regular review of the appropriateness of these care arrangements and the development of children is monitored and assessed by the Government of West Bengal and through its competent local authorities and duly authorised organisations. However HOPE is committed to strengthen community-based care and reduce the dependency on institutional care.

In 9 Residential Child Care Centres (registered under Section41 (1) of Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2015) children in need of care and protection are provided with age-appropriate nutrition, healthcare and treatment, elementary and special education, counselling, skills and knowledge building trainings, co-curricular classes, sports, vocational skills and career counselling for their holistic growth and development.
