There is an urgent need for foster caregivers for some of the most diverse populations of children in care. We want to ensure that Aboriginal children and youth have foster caregivers to support their journeys until they return to their families, extended families or communities.
You do not have to be Aboriginal to be a foster caregiver, however First Nation, Metis, Inuit Status and Non-Status Aboriginal foster caregivers are needed across BC. The first step to becoming a foster caregiver is to contact us at the Indigenous Perspectives Society.
When you contact us be prepared to provide a little bit of personal information such as:
- Your name and age
- The names and ages of the people who live with you
- What kind of space you have available in your home
