The Children's Aid Society works to keep families together whenever possible. However, when this is not possible
and a relative or kin are not able to step in, a child may be brought into the care of the Children's Aid Society. Foster
family care is the first choice in these situations because most children's needs are best met in a family environment. Foster families are the backbone of the work we do protecting children from abuse.
Foster parents work with Children's Aid Society staff as part of a team to develop a plan for each child in care. Foster parents provide stability and a caring home that encourages a child's growth and development. While the legal responsibility for the child remains with the agency, foster families play an important role in the child's daily life.
