Private Support and Discussion Groups
The FFCNWT has a private Facebook community. Because we must be cautious about confidentiality, the groups are CLOSED to the public. Our groups are monitored by experienced staff from our office who will be able to assist you. The only way you can access the groups is if you send a request by email to our office. We will then give you the rules and guidelines that we have for the groups and once you accept them, we will add you to the group. The next time you log on to Facebook, anything that is posted in the group will be added to your newsfeed. It's that simple!!
Head to the contact page to send us a message with your interest in joining the closed Facebook groups. Or read below for a specific group you may want to join.
FOSTER FAMILY COALITION OF THE NWT
Foster Family Appreciation Week
The Canadian Foster Family Association created this short video in recognition of Foster Family Appreciation Week!
National Foster Family Appreciation week is the 3rd week in October. This is one week out of the year where foster families across the country are recognized for their ongoing commitment to the some of the most amazing children in our communities, our foster children.
Each year, events take place all across the country in recognition of foster families. Contact the FFCNWT office or your regional health authority if you would like to know what’s happening in your community.
These kids have difficult lives, and if I can do something to make their road a little smoother, that’s a great joy.
If I can do it, you can do it. People think that you have to be this almighty person, but you don’t, anyone can be a foster parent.
Don’t be afraid to foster, but also learn what your limitations are, and don’t be afraid to say what your needs are.
