Fostercare

How can you possibly improve the life of a child in Nova Scotia? Be there. It’s that simple. Your care, attention and time is all it takes to give a child or teen a stronger future.

Becoming a foster parent is one of the most rewarding things you can do. And we can help you do it. We’re here to provide all the training, resources and support you need. Open your heart. Open your home. You can do this.

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

Right now in Nova Scotia, there are more children who need help than there are foster parents to offer it. We need families in communities across the province. Having foster parents 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.
