Become a Foster Parent. Make a Difference.

Posted: September 21st, 2017

Tikinagan protects children and works with families who are experiencing difficulties. Whenever possible, we work to keep children and families together - but sometimes children may need to live apart from their families for a time. We first look to extended family for foster care, but some children don’t have this option and this is why we need foster families.

By being a foster parent, you can make a real difference in the life of a child. You can help them stay connected to their community, family, friends and culture while giving them a safe and stable home.

Tikinagan provides orientation, training, ongoing support and respite to foster families. Foster parents are a valuable part of a team dedicated to meeting the needs of children in care.

Specialized Care

We are also seeking Emergency Homes, Specialized Treatment Homes and parents for Agency Operated Homes.
