Affinity Family Homes is looking for compassionate foster parents to provide care for children and youth in the their homes.
Our parents should have the ability to work in a team environment, be open minded and flexible when developing and implementing strategies to affect change, and have a genuine desire to make a difference in a child or youth's life. A well developed sense of humour also seems to be a trait most successful foster parents possess!
Foster parents can be male or female, single, married, divorced or widowed. We welcome those from all socioeconomic, cultural and religious backgrounds. Gender identification and sexual orientation are not issues and we actively promote diversity. Foster parents must be 21 years of age, have a bedroom in their home for a foster child or youth, live in Ontario, and may be required to provide evidence of citizenship.
You would be surprised at those who make great foster parents. Your family doesn't have to be wealthy to foster, have perfect children of your own, or live in a mansion to provide a loving, stable environment that allows children and youth to thrive. Most successful foster parents are curious about life, love the company of children and youth, look forward to challenges, are able to work with support teams and, not surprisingly, laugh at our cheesy humour!
Fostering is a rewarding career choice that allows you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children, youth and families in your community.
This One rollercoaster is waiting for you
Please give a child or youth the opportunity to be part of a caring family, create bonds, learn life skills and have fun! Give us a call!
