Linguistics / Et dansk institutionskoncept
Danish term or phrase: ungdomspension
En ungdomspension er en form for midlertidig institution for unge under 18 som ikke kan bo hjemme, men som ikke er modne til at bo alene. Det er normalt et mindre bofaellesskab med faelles koekken og faciliteter og et par paedagoger som saetter regler og holder oeje med hvad der foregaar, men som dog ikke noedvendigvis er tilstede hele tiden.

Saa: det er ikke en institution for haardt belastede unge, men en form for boligarrangement for unge der har nogle problemer med at bo hjemme og maaske med at strukturere deres dagligdag, men som ellers kan fungere ret normalt.

Hvad hedder denne form for institution paa engelsk - findes den overhovedet i engelsk-sprogede lande?

Explanation:
That would be group home. I have just finished a Danish-English translation project using that term.

Please see wikipedia for further reference.

Example sentence(s):
  • In his everyday life, Rune lives at a group home called Hedehusene to relieve his grandmother.
