“Do you have a child who is in the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development through a special needs or voluntary care agreement? To place a child with extra support needs into the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development is a very painful and challenging decision for any family to make. Often, the family feels judged and guilty. On top of this, during the stress of COVID-19, families have struggled even further to see their child when in care. If this resonates with you, please join other families like yourself for a candid conversation of what this experience has been like for you. Find support and strength in this wider network of families on a similar journey.

As a provincial organization, Family Support Institute acknowledges that our work spans across all of the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories in BC. Therefore, we respectfully honour all First Nations, Inuit and Métis people, as well as their ancestors, who have lived here and cared for these lands. It is with gratitude that we can live, learn and do our work in the province now known as British Columbia.
