We encourage people from all ethnic backgrounds to apply as our children have diverse interests that may also match your interests.
You may still foster regardless if you rent or own your residence.
We require homes that will care for infants, sibling groups, and teenagers up to the age of 19 years old.
The geographical area of our current foster parents include Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, and Delta.
Foster care provides alternative care for children who are unable to live with their birth parents or legal guardians. We embrace the learning and teachings from our past and are committed to providing the best alternative care for Aboriginal children.
We need people who are able to care for children with a variety of needs. People who are motivated and willing to look at parenting from a unique perspective will have the best understanding of sharing their lives with Aboriginal Children and Families.
Uncles, aunties, grandparents and cousins have as much influence to a child as birth parents. The more Aboriginal people playing roles in Aboriginal children’s lives the better the chance for healthy connection to their sense of belonging and being Aboriginal.
How children are placed with foster families depends on a number of variables. We need to know the skills, strengths and limits of each home. We assess the children’s needs and determine a plan of care. All of the information we have about the child is shared openly with foster parents.
Training is a part of the fostering experience. Some training is mandatory to provide you with knowledge and keep you aware of how the system of foster care works. Other training is provided throughout the year as we obtain opportunities to share the latest information about parenting. We also value cultural learning experiences and share them whenever and however we can.
