October is Foster Family Month, the perfect time to honour the many people who are making a difference in the lives of children and youth and helping them build brighter futures.

Foster families provide a safe and secure environment to foster children in transition, from infants to teenagers, making a lasting commitment, often years long. When children are removed from their homes, many have experienced difficult times and are scared and wary. Earning their trust can be a slow process, but connections are important for all children and youth.
