The Saskatchewan Foster Families Association is launching a public awareness campaign in northeast Saskatchewan to encourage interested individuals and families to consider fostering vulnerable infants and young children.
The Association launched the Foster New Beginnings campaign last year to raise awareness of the need for more foster families. Their Executive Director Deb Davies says the initial campaigns targeted communities throughout Saskatchewan and as a result they have increased the number of foster families across the province. However she adds there are babies and children in communities across northeast Saskatchewan that still need a safe and loving home.
The Association has a world class training program to support interested people in becoming an approved foster home and they were the first province to offer this training online. For information you can call them at 1-800-667-7002 or visit their website at www.saskfosterfamilies.ca.
