How do I become a foster parent?

Call our agency at 519-631-1492 and request to speak to a resource worker.  We can set up a visit to discuss with you, in person, our foster parenting program and provide you with an application package.

Once we have received your completed application package, we will enroll you in training called PRIDE.  We offer this training three times throughout the year.  This is mandatory training in Ontario for people interested in becoming foster parents.  The training prepares you for various experiences you may face when children are placed into your home.  The training is one evening per week for a duration of 10 weeks.

You will be assigned a worker to complete your home study called a SAFE (Structured Analysis Family Evaluation) after the completion of PRIDE training.  This involves a series of interviews, questionnaires, references and background checks.
