The Foster Family Coalition provides essential services to families and individuals in the NWT.
We exist to strengthen communities so that kids can be safe, loved, and heard.
We are an organization that serves and supports foster and adoptive families across the NWT.
The decision to form this organization began in June 2001, after the Yellowknife Foster Family Association hosted the National Foster Care Symposium. Delegates at this symposium unanimously agreed there was a need for a Territorial-wide organization.
The Foster Family Coalition of the NWT (FFCNWT) was formed in June 2002, and on October 2, 2002, became incorporated under the Societies Act. The FFCNWT became a registered charitable organization on September 5, 2003. In the fall of 2013 we expanded our services to support pre- and post- adoptive parents as well.
Our office is located in Yellowknife at 5125 50th St.
