Caregiver (Foster Parent) Support ProgramProviding support to foster families and family caregivers
Caregiver (Foster Parent) Support Program
The Caregiver (Foster Parent) Support Program was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Children and Family Development to provide support to foster families and family caregivers in order to maintain ministry placements.
CSP provides services to assist caregivers in managing a wide range of challenges and behaviors related to trauma, diagnoses, attachment and transitions. CSP staff promote self-advocacy and provide support through individual in-person sessions, phone/text/email support, care team meetings, resources and training opportunities.
