Foster Care

How We Help

Foster care can be tough on kids. When a child comes to Association House, we find a loving temporary home. Then, we work with all involved to find a safe permanent solution. Through years of experience, we have changed the lives of so many children via a safe return home or adoption. We pride ourselves on having the largest fully bilingual foster care team in the community, and we place a large emphasis on cultural relevance.

Becoming a foster parent is a huge responsibility, and it can be one of the most amazing experiences you have in a lifetime. We are always in need of foster parents who are passionate about caring for the children and youth we help.

"Being a foster parent is such a rewarding experience. Seeing how one year in a loving, caring, and stable home can have such a positive impact and change, in the children’s lives." 

- Jack and Andy, foster parents

135 children were protected and cared for by our foster parents in 2021.
