Foster parents are people who are committed to making a difference in the life of a child.
Our foster parents reside in or in close proximity to York Region and are at least 18 years
of age. They may be married or single. They may or may not already have children of their own. Foster
families come from a variety of cultural, spiritual, economic, and lifestyle situations.
Successful foster families tend to share some common characteristics.
Like to spend time with children and place high value on parenting
Have an understanding of children, their development, and their needs
Have an optimistic and positive life view
Are patient and consistent, yet able to meet new challenges with flexibility
All foster families receive extensive training, regular relief, and ongoing
support from our foster care team.
