Pathways for 2SLGBTQ+ Parents
August 1, 2024 @ 12:00 am
Pathways to Permanence is a multi-sessional psycho-educational program
Due to our current funding guidelines, outlined by the Ministry, participants must be an adoptive parent (including parents pre adoption finalization) or a foster-to-adopt parent, and must have adopted (or be fostering-to-adopt) through a children’s aid society, to attend our free Pathways program.
Please note – we are working to make Pathways available to all permanency parents (Customary Care, Kinship, Legal Guardian, International Adoptions, Private Adoptions), and hope to be able to offer them soon. If you would like to be kept in the loop on when these new offerings become available, please be sure to sign-up for our newsletter.
