Children are placed in care because they are abused or neglected by their parents and it is unsafe for them to remain at home. Resource parents provide the care and support needed at a critical time in the lives of these children. That’s why we believe in supporting resource parents as they help foster children overcome difficult beginnings to lead happy and productive lives.
We believe that children in foster care are the community’s children, with the same hopes and dreams as all children. Our vision is a future where all youth and families thrive in safe, stable and nurturing homes.
