Year-round gift

Foster Families open their homes and their hearts to children in need of a safe place to live for a few days or a few months.

This season of giving is a wonderful time to acknowledge Foster Families, and the care they give to children and youth throughout the year.

Foster Families open their homes and their hearts to children in need of a safe place to live for a few days or a few months.

On any given day, more than 200 children in the Vernon area need the love and skills of these substitute families.

Foster Families understand how to meet the diverse needs of children and they support children’s connections to their family and culture.

Foster Families provide the guidance, patience and compassion to comfort bruised hearts. They’re willing to meet the challenges of helping children through difficult times, because they believe they can make a difference.

The Okanagan Foster Parents Association thanks Foster Families for all they do to improve the lives of children and youth in our community.

Noelle Typusiak,

Foster Parent coordinator,

North Okanagan
