Support & Education
Foster Family Support Educational Services provides specialized support and educational opportunities to Foster Parents involved with both Ministry of Children and Family Development and Vancouver Aboriginal Child Family Services Society. The program is a client centered approach that promotes successful community placements of children in foster care.
Protocol Support Line
Foster parents share the ministry's responsibility to protect the safety and well-being of children in care. Carrying out this responsibility in day-to-day life is not always easy. Foster families face a lot of challenges and sometimes these lead to differences between foster parents and ministry staff. Most issues can be worked out by talking things over with a social worker. But other situations require a formal process called a Protocol that clearly spells out what will happen and when.
