Our foster and kin families are an amazing group of people.
October 20-26 is National Foster Family Appreciation Week. Everyone needs a family and our foster and kin caregivers have a lasting impact on children and youth. They support children and youth through some of the challenges that come with traumatic separation, loss and other difficulties. As role models, they contribute to helping these children and youth develop a positive outlook and create a sense of belonging.
Our caregivers regularly manage complex needs and behaviours, build relationships with biological families to support permanency, support life-skill development and educational success, and so much more!
We are truly grateful for all our families do to ensure children are loved, valued and supported.
