Children and youth who are connected to their families, communities and cultures do better as adults.
When Indigenous children need to be away from their families, it is important for them to be with a family and caregivers willing to work to keep them connected to their roots. We look to our foster parents to fulfill this role, and to be a supportive, consistent caregiver in our children’s lives. Being a caregiver is a challenging job with many rewards. Caregivers play a very important role in our families, and in the wellbeing of our communities and Nations.
We are always in need of caregivers and of Indigenous families willing to open their hearts and their homes to an Indigenous child.
