Hello all – I am Melody McFoster!
I proudly serve as an ambassador for a foster care agency called Key Assets Canada Ltd.
And…I’m here to ask you to Foster Up!
Key Assets partners with the local Children’s Aid Societies across all of Southern Ontario and we provide carefully-matched and well-supported foster placements for children and youth aged 0-18 years, most of whom have complex needs or have experienced some form of abuse, neglect or trauma. More than ever before, we are looking to build long-lasting and loving homes for these well-deserving young people.
In honour of National Foster Family Week (October 16th to 22nd, 2016), I am raising awareness about Key Assets’ crucial need for home-based care.
Here are some of the qualities we are seeking in well-qualified foster parents:
© You must be over the age of 21
© You must have a spare bedroom
© You must have a valid driver’s license, and regular access to a reliable vehicle
© A stay-at-home parent is preferred, however if you are currently working, your schedule must be flexible enough to accommodate the needs and varying schedules of our young people
© We hope you have the “stickability” to weather the storms with children who need a safe and stable place to thrive
Key Assets’ provides foster families with a generous compensation package, 24-7 support and ongoing training opportunities. Our specialized staff are committed to helping you approach and handle different types of situations, as you create memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, or would like to learn more information, please contact Key Assets at 905-279-4500 or www.keyassets.ca.
Every journey begins with a single step!
Melody McFoster xoxo
