PRIDE stands for Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education. It is a provincial training program given locally by our Agency which usually involves 10 three-hour sessions over a three month period.
SAFE stands for Structured Analysis Family Evaluation. It’s a comprehensive set of assessment tools to determine your eligibility, suitability and readiness to become a foster parent. It takes about 10 hours of meetings to complete.

Once a match is made between you and a child in need of a foster home we will make a placement with you.
