Learn More about Becoming a Foster Parent

Every child deserves to benefit from a safe, loving family environment. Our goal is to keep families together, but when this is not possible in instances of abuse or neglect, we rely on our foster parents to open their hearts and homes to children and youth in need.

Foster parents provide care on a full-time basis or can also choose to provide relief assistance to other foster parents. At this time, Highland Shores Children’s Aid is in need of foster homes for children and youth of all ages, including siblings.

We welcome you to explore the links below to hear firsthand from foster parents, and the youth they support, about their experiences. 

We encourage you to take some first steps towards opening your heart and home and changing the future of a child. Call 613-962-9291 or 800-267-0570 and indicate that you’d like more information about fostering. One of our staff members will get back to you to begin the discussion on whether or not fostering is right for you and your family.
