Event Registration

Did you know? Youth over 15 make up almost half the children/young people in Ontario’s foster care system. As young people prepare to begin their journey towards independence, a family is crucial in providing them with the unconditional support they need as they navigate life’s challenges.

What is Power of Permanency?

Power of Permanency is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how you can provide a loving home for a young person who desires a stable, supportive, and caring family. This event takes place via Zoom platform, where you can attend from the comfort of your home. Listen to workers and caregivers elaborate on the personalities and lifestyles of youth while having the opportunity to type in questions live. The event concludes with an educational piece as well as recommended resources. Join us to learn more about these incredible young people and how you can support them as they grow and reach new milestones!
