Every child has a right to grow up in a safe and happy environment, but too often we are reminded that things are not always that way.

Foster care involves providing a caring and supportive home environment for children or youth for a period of a few days, weeks, months, a year, or more.

After a child has been placed in foster care, the Children's Aid Society works with the birth parent(s) to improve the home conditions, with the goal of returning the child to a safe and caring environment.

Being a foster parent is a rewarding experience, but it is not without challenges. Many of the children who rely on foster care programs come from situations of abuse or neglect, resulting in emotional and/or behavioural problems.

Interested in learning more about fostering?

Join us for one of our Foster Parent Panels, where you can hear first-hand from a panel of foster parents about their personal experiences, including the rewards and challenges of fostering. This is also a great opportunity to ask them questions about the assessment and training process! Upcoming panel dates:

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
