Instilling hope and building on strengths that reside in all families.
The Out of Care Program provides support to caregivers, designated by MCFD, who provide daily care for the children of extended family or friends. These living arrangements permit children to remain connected to the larger family network and avoid placement in foster care. Through the provision of an Out of Care Counsellor, caregivers receive emotional support; assistance accessing resource information; guidance and education regarding the family court process; as well as guidance and education with nurturing healthy relationships with family members.
