This free online info session is meant to answer questions you may have about becoming a licensed foster parent in Waterloo Region.
Currently in Waterloo Region over 80 children are placed outside of their community due to a foster family shortage. They need kind, caring people to open up their hearts and homes to them.
If you have ever thought about fostering, join us for an informative evening. Our team will introduce you to the basic aspects of fostering as well as answer questions you may have. There is no commitment required for those attending this session, it is simply for your information.
