Providing foster care is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

Call 1-800-565-1884 to register for one of our Foster Care Information Sessions listed at the bottom of the page. And give a child the CARE they need.

Why we need You

There are hundreds of children across Nova Scotia who need foster care. The reasons vary. Some have lost people they love, others are facing domestic abuse. But a child in care requires the same kind of care every child does: a safe environment with nurturing, encouraging, personalized attention.

Care like this can only exist in the home: a home just like yours.

Information Sessions give people the chance to learn more about the process of becoming a foster parent. We’re happy to meet with you, answer any questions you have and talk about the rewards and challenges of being a foster parent. We can also help you start the application process. 

To sign up for an Information Session in your community call 1-800-565-1884.
