Dufferin Child & Family Services is seeking foster parents with specialized parenting skills to provide emergency, short term foster care for children and youth, including teenagers.
The successful candidate(s) will receive a daily, tax-free retainer to be available for placements as needed and further daily compensation once children/youth are placed in the home. You will often be working with children/youth who have emotional and behavioral needs. We are seeking a home with the availability for sibling groups.
Assessment of the children’s needs is delivered through an integrated team approach that individualizes services for each child/youth. Admission foster parents are trained, supervised, and supported by our program staff, including a consulting psychologist, and play a primary role in initial therapeutic interventions. The program’s goal is to reunite the child/youth with his or her family or to assist in assessment for longer term care. To view the Admission Home Foster Parent Info please click here.
