Interested in becoming a foster family?
Foster Families provide a nurturing, supportive home environment for children who are temporarily unable to live with their biological parents. While children enter the care of the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development for a variety of reasons, the case plan is almost always reunification with the biological family. Being a foster parent means working as part of a team to ensure the best interests of children are met. The team includes the foster family, birth parents, child, social worker and any other person significant to the child.
~ Fronie Blake, Hants Harbour
"At the end of the day when I lay my head on my pillow, I feel blessed. The children that have been in my home are the most precious. Each day their eyes would get brighter and their smile would get bigger. They have opened up their hearts to a new family and we have made them welcome in our home".
