Urgent Need for Foster Families in the Lower Laurentians

In a heartfelt call to action, the Integrated Health and Social Services Centre (CISSS) of the Laurentians is actively seeking foster families to provide care for children ranging from newborns to 17-year-olds who are currently under youth protection. This urgent appeal highlights a significant demand for short-term, medium-term, and long-term foster care within the region.

The North Shore municipalities are witnessing a pivotal moment as the local CISSS emphasizes the critical need for compassionate individuals and families willing to open their homes and hearts to foster children. Julie Delaney, President and CEO of CISSS des Laurentides, emphasizes the transformative impact of becoming a foster family: “Offering a nurturing, warm, and safe environment can significantly alter the trajectory of a child’s life, making foster care an invaluable opportunity to make a profound difference.”

The call for foster families is especially pronounced in the Lower Laurentians, where an increasing number of children are in dire need of a stable and loving home environment. The CISSS is reaching out to the community, urging potential foster parents to consider the rewarding journey of fostering a child or adolescent.

Interested individuals are invited to participate in an upcoming online information session scheduled for April 8, 2024, at 6:30 PM. This mandatory session for all applicants will provide detailed insights into the fostering process, including eligibility criteria and the support available to foster families.

The initiative reflects a broader effort to ensure the well-being and safety of children in need, underscoring the importance of community involvement in addressing the pressing demand for foster care. For those considering this noble and life-changing commitment, the first step is to attend the information session. Registration details and the schedule for future meetings are available on the CISSS des Laurentides’ website at www.santelaurentides.gouv.qc.ca.

Becoming a foster family is more than just providing a roof over a child’s head; it’s about offering love, stability, and a chance for a brighter future. The CISSS des Laurentides invites the community to be a part of this vital service to children and adolescents in need, reinforcing the notion that it truly takes a village to raise a child.
