2009: Family Exchange Areas
Beginning in 2009, Chicco and Ai.Bi. began providing Family Exchange Areas.
Services set up at Ai.Bi. sites across Italy where cost-free exchanges take place supporting parents and where psychological help sessions are offered to families.
The purpose of the Family Exchange Areas is to provide concrete responses to the requirements of children and their families, both foster families and blood-related families, increasing awareness on themes such as care and fostering.
In Italy, up to this present day, there are 1 Family Exchange Areas and a Family Exchange Area in Onna-Aquila, with the specific task of providing genuine support to families affected by the earthquake.
