There are children in your community who need you!
You can be the difference for a child in need by opening your home as a foster family. Foster families provide temporary, loving care to children who cannot live safely at home. Foster parents are needed for infants, toddlers, teens, children with special needs and sibling groups.
Our foster parents are married or single, have a lot of experience with children or while having no direct experience, are interested in working with children, represent the LGBTQ community, come from a variety of cultures and ethnicities, or may decide to foster with another family member. The foster parents of the Children’s Aid Society represent the diversity of our city.
There is an extensive training program for new applicants to provide you with the tools you need to begin your role as a foster parent. There are also many other supports that are provided to help you along the way.
How to BeginIf you are interested in exploring the possibility of becoming a foster parent, monthly information sessions are held at the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto. To register for an information session, speak to our Intake Coordinator, Kim Hnatko 416-924-4640x 3513.
