I'm an adoptive, kinship, customary care parent, or caregiver

Are you an adoptive, kinship, or customary care parent, or caregiver? The ACO is here to support you with a range of resources tailored to enhance your adoption and permanency journey. From comprehensive courses to transformative programs, we provide essential tools to help you navigate the complexities of caregiving. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other families who share similar experiences, creating a community of support and understanding.

Currently, we’re excited to offer a specialized one-day training session for foster families, titled “Trauma & Loss Through the Mind, Body & Heart of Children & Youth in Foster Care.” This workshop is designed to equip you with the insights and skills needed to address the challenges faced by children and youth in foster care.
