In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to listen to health experts and take direction from Public Health to protect our employees, as well as the children, youth, families and community members that we work with.
Please note that our offices in Barrie, Bracebridge, Collingwood, Huntsville, Midland and Orillia are open to the public BY APPOINTMENT. Urgent supports are also provided in each of our branches.
We continue to provide essential services to the community. If any member of the public or professional have a concern about the safety and/or well-being of a child or youth under 18, they should immediately contact us.
Open Your Heart and Your Home to a Child
Fostering gives children the benefit of ordinary family life until it’s time for them to return home, move to another family member’s home, move on to a new permanent family or remain connected with at least one committed adult in their life. Foster parents provide daily care and support. They work with staff, teachers, community partners and families. Foster care is a full-time commitment of nurturing, advocacy and love.

Watch our story unfold
The creation of our new visual identity was an important step for our amalgamated agency 5 years ago. Our bilingual name, symbol, and colours were chosen to embrace our work in child welfare and children’s mental health. Social, family, cultural, and health connexions are all a part of the safety and well-being of children and families – the purpose of our work.
