My Post (3)

We are so excited to announce that October 2020 will hereby be acknowledged as “Foster and Kinship Caregiver Appreciation Month”, honouring the dedication and commitment of Foster and Kinship Caregivers to our most vulnerable children and youth. 


Stay tuned to our website. Facebook Page and Emails for upcoming information on recognition and appreciation events across Alberta.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff of the Alberta Foster and Kinship Association, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to the more than 4200 foster and kinship homes across Alberta and to those across Canada. On a daily basis, foster and kinship caregivers work closely and in collaboration with families, government, schools, medical professionals, agencies and more to ensure the safety and the best possible outcomes for the children and youth in their care. Your commitment, dedication, support and kindness to the children and youth placed in your care, at a time in their lives when they need it the most, is nothing short of admirable. From ensuring familial, community to cultural connections, we appreciate and commend all you do every day in supporting our most vulnerable children and youth.
