Thank you Foster Parents.
Last week, on October 20, 2009, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk recognized the contributions of our foster parents through an annual dinner. The occasion was marked with acknowledgements to several foster families for esteemed service and their continued commitment to children and youth in Haldimand and Norfolk by reaching 5, 10, 15 and 25 year milestones.
Haldimand Mayor, Marie Trainer who attended the dinner commended the work of foster parents as being, “very important to the community.”
At this time, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk has approximately 323 youth and children in care. Many of these children are being provided homes and support by 102 foster families in our communities.
The care of youth and children is the utmost responsibility of everyone in the community. Foster families and individuals have an essential role by providing stability and a caring home that encourages a child or youth’s growth and development.
