20th Foster Families Celebration Anniversary

10/19/14

October 19-25, 2014 is National Foster Family Week and the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies (OACAS), along with Children’s Aid Societies (CASs), are celebrating the vital role of foster families in the lives of children and youth requiring out of home care.  

Every year foster parents are recognized nation wide during the third week of October for the contribution they make to lives of children and youth who require out-of-home care. This is the 20th year that the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa has honoured the commitment of our foster families.

For the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, our mission can only be accomplished through positive partnerships with the community. Fostering is one such partnership. We are committed to finding a home for every child or youth who requires out of home care.

Fostering is a commitment to provide safety, security and stability in the lives of children and youth who require a temporary, short-term out-of-home placement. Foster care gives youth a chance to grow in a family.
