Working cooperatively with the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development and the foster parents of the Vancouver Island Region, the FPSS Society shares the responsibility for providing meaningful Education, Support and Networking opportunities to caregivers in our fostering community. We work to establish a nurturing environment for caregivers—“A Supportive Culture”—that empowers the foster parents of the region to become involved, enriches their understanding of Ministry expectations, and increases their caregiver competency, awareness and accountability.
Within this context services will reflect:
- the individualized needs of the caregiver;
- flexibility to meet a diverse array of needs at any point in time; and
- understanding of MCFD policy and procedures.
