Foster parents are those special individuals who provide an alternative environment where some of societies most vulnerable individuals (children) are afforded a home setting that promotes their growth and development. The Foster Parents Society of Ontario (FPSO) is recognized for its visible and vocal support of foster families across the province.
Thanks to you and many others who care about foster children and families in our province, the Foster Parents Society of Ontario has evolved from a small grass roots organization to be a respected, professional organization with a provincial presence. FPSO has been providing an annual educational conference for over 25 years. These conferences provide essential training to foster parents so that they may provide professional care to the children in their charge. FPSO has also developed and promotes online training for foster parents. Further, FPSO acknowledges the foster family as a unit that includes foster children, natural children and adopted children. To this end FPSO has provided bursaries to the foster family members and has recognized the significant contribution that Foster families make through their awards program that includes The Foster Parent of the Year award and the Lifetime Achievement award.
Even with all of the successes, FPSO wants — and needs to do more to support foster parents and children. Please become a very special friend who believes that supporting foster parents and children is one of the important things anyone can do. You are stepping forward helping foster parents being seen as a service that is respected both in the province of Ontario and Child Welfare.
