Foster Family Week – October 15-21, 2017

Foster Family Week highlights the critical role foster families play in the safety and well-being of children and youth.

When children and youth cannot remain at home due to safety concerns, the preferred option is to place them with their immediate or extended family, or a member of their community. If that is not possible, foster care may be the best alternative.

Foster parents work closely with us, opening both their hearts and homes to provide care for children and youth going through an immensely difficult time in their life and who often have complex needs. Foster families provide a nurturing and supportive home for children and youth in care for a few days, weeks, months or possibly years.

Many Children’s Aid Societies in Ontario, including the Halton CAS, are facing a foster parent crisis. In fact, the need for foster families to open their homes to teens, siblings and children or youth who may have special needs has never been greater.
