As a valued member of a professional team upon approval, you will be supported and guided as you integrate the child/children into your family.
A variety of support opportunities are offered to foster families, such as:
- a foster care worker
- 24-hour on-call child and youth counsellor support
- peer mentoring support
- built-in relief
- on-going training
In addition, financial reimbursement to help cover the cost of each child’s care and sustenance, clothing and other needs such as recreation costs is also available to foster families. Foster parents do not receive a salary, therefore are not required to pay income tax on the compensation received.
