Unemployment, poverty, and addictions create a vicious circle of risk where parents are not able to look after themselves and to ensure their children’s basic needs and socialization. Children face various problems: they are characterized by destructive behavior, emotional disorders, low self-esteem, and the lack of social and communication skills. The aim of this research was to reveal the family empowering social services provided in the child day care centers. The object of this research was the empowering social services in the child day care centers. The objectives: 1) to reveal how social workers construct the concept of empowerment in practice; 2) to describe the value of social services provided in child day care centers for parents’ empowering process; 3) to describe the children’s empowering process in child day care centers based on the social workers’ good practice examples. Qualitative research was carried out in order to reveal the family empowering services. The data was collected by using the method of semi-structured interview. Five social workers from child day care centers participated in the research. The analysis of the data was based on qualitative data analysis steps distinguished by Krysik and Finn (2010). The relevant categories and subcategories were assigned to the research data, and, in accordance with this data, placed into tables. Then each category was justified by excerpts from interviews. Later on, all the collected data was interpreted and compared with the results of other researches. The sampling of the research was formed by combining the mixed target and snowball samplings. The data was gathered in March 2017. The data analysis revealed that social workers describe empowerment as love for a child, help for a family and motivation.[...]
