The Island Connection Celebrates 100 Editions!
Foster Parent Support Services Society proudly presents the 100th edition of The Island Connection. Over the years, The Island Connection has been a way for FPSS to inform, connect, educate, and support foster parents across all areas of Vancouver Island.
We have updated the Agreements with Young Adults information and added some new scholarships and bursaries to the guide. The new content is bolded in the table of contents.
In response to the challenges made by the Representative for Children and Youth to make post-secondary education accessible to youth in care, many colleges and universities have stepped forward to offer tuition waivers, bursaries, and other financial assistance to these youth.

Right now there are more than 1000 kids across B.C. who need temporary foster families when they can’t live at home. Many of these children and teens come from hard places; however fostering can have a huge positive impact on their lives. Our foster families come from a variety of backgrounds, each with different life experiences, skills, and qualities.
