Who Foster Children Are

Foster children need to be placed with foster families that can open their hearts and homes to meet the child’s needs and right to be cared for safely.

Even when coming into Agency care is required, children feel their world is turned upside down. They can feel scared, confused, hurt, powerless, and lost. Some foster children have experienced neglect, abandonment, and/or exposure to domestic violence. For some of these children, physical, sexual, or mental abuse has been real. Their previous experiences and feelings can lead to behavioural and emotional difficulties.
