Foster Family Appreciation Week

Posted: October 13th, 2020

This week (Oct 19-23) during National Foster Family Week, we would like to highlight the invaluable work our Foster Parents do all year long. They are an integral part to Mamow Obiki-ahwahsoowin, "everyone working together to raise our children." This ties into the theme of this month's Dress Purple Day (October 27), where we celebrate the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families.

Foster families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a single adult, married or common-law partners, single parent, or already have children of your own (small or grown-up), you can be a foster family.

Tikinagan provides support and services for families who are experiencing difficulties, and works to help these families find resources to heal. Whenever possible, we work to keep children and families together, and to help parents care for their children.

Tikinagan is committed to keeping our children within our communities. By being a foster parent, you can make a real difference in the life of a child by keeping them connected to their family, culture, and community.
