Foster care: temporary family-based care for children who, for their own safety and well-being, cannot stay in their own homes.
We need more families who can provide safe, stable and homes for children. If you are interested in fostering, please phone the Alberta Foster Parent Association toll-free line at 1‑800‑667‑2372.
Foster parents receive training, support and financial compensation to care for children.
Watch “How far you’ve come” – a video series profiling former children in care and their foster parents.
