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
Volunteer Mentorship Program
Volunteers play a vital role in the every day workings of the Foster Family Coalition and the impact that we have in our community.
The FFC runs a volunteer mentorship program, similar to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Volunteers are connected with a child or a youth between the ages of 5 to 29, and meet with them regularly. Through this program, volunteers are able to develop a meaningful and supportive relationship with children and youth. The positive impact that a volunteer mentor can create in the life of a child or youth is very big!
