Based on feedback received from foster caregivers, children in care and social workers, we’re redesigning the foster care program to make sure everyone receives the support they need to thrive.

Why we need You

Right now in Nova Scotia, there are more children who need help than there are foster caregivers to offer it. We need families in communities across the province. Having foster caregivers in every community means a child who needs one can stay in their home community, their school, with their friends and more. You can offer the stability, nurturing and attention that all children need to flourish.
