The Nawash Band Representative Program, in conjunction with the Native Child Welfare Program, is seeking a caring, supportive, permanent family for a young boy with roots in our community. You do not have to be a currently approved foster home, just a home with room for an 11-year-old boy, with a desire to help him grow in a loving and encouraging environment. Program and financial supports will be available to help with the adjustment to a new community and environment.
Tom (not his real name) has extended family in the community. He has strong attachments to his siblings who have already found permanent loving homes. Facilitating regular contact with his siblings would be one of the conditions of caring for Tom.
Tom has been in the foster care system for approximately 6 years in a variety of placements. Prior to that, he and his siblings experienced an unstable childhood. He has been struggling to find the family he needs and will require some patience and understanding.
If you think you are the family for Tom, please call the Native Child Welfare program at 519-534-3818, or the Band Rep Program at 5195341689 x232.
Thank you for considering this undertaking. We look forward to hearing from potential families. Please also share this request with off-reserve family members who may have a place in their lives for this special boy.
