Become a foster parent

December 19, 2017 10:07 AM

The Ministry of Children and Family Development is seeking foster parents in the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

Right now there are more than 1000 kids across B.C. who need temporary foster families when they can’t live at home. Many of these children and teens come from hard places; however fostering can have a huge positive impact on their lives.

Foster families come from a variety of backgrounds, each with different life experiences, skills, and qualities. They do, however, share a few things in common:

  • All are residents of B.C. who are (at least) 19 years of age
  • Their homes are safe and nurturing
  • Each is comfortable in providing guidance and supervision that meets the child’s needs and their cultural heritage
  • They are active members of the child’s care team
