Be a Foster Parent
Open your heart and your home to a vulnerable child
Every day, foster families across Prince Edward Island open their homes and their hearts to children who need safe and loving homes. At any given time, there are about 170 children in foster care receiving a safe and nurturing home environment where they feel loved and supported.
