Fostering Children is rewarding and challenging.
As Foster Parents we have children come and stay with us when they need love and attention the most. We provide the children with a loving stable home to be part of. We are rewarded as we see them grow, develop into young adults and return the love to us. We watch as conditions in their homes improve to again return to their own families or the children are fortunate enough to be adopted by a loving family.
We are challenged by the many needs of our Foster Children. To meet these challenges we are provided training, Resource Workers, and Support groups and programs. Thank you for your
interest - we encourage YOU to “Be Part of Something Special”.

Foster Family Association of the Waterloo Region.
Foster Care Waterloo Region is part of Family and Children's Services of the Waterloo Region, one of the 53 Children's Aid Societies who are mandated under the Child and Family Services Act (CFSA) to protect children. Family and Children's Services is proud to have been protecting the children of this community since 1894.
The mandate of Family and Children's Services is to protect the best interests of children. While we believe that children thrive best in their own home, at time there are circumstances which may warrant the removal of children from their home to ensure their safety and well-being.
Since a child’s needs are best met by a family environment, foster care is the first choice for these children. Many of the children who enter the care of Family and Children’s Services have experienced some form of neglect or abuse. Foster families provide a nurturing, healthy and safe environment for foster children.
