The History

Many children have experienced a degree of neglect and or physical, emotional or sexual abuse at the hands of others.  In many cases, children will demonstrate various behavioural and developmental issues and possible delays as a result of their past experiences.  These effects often manifest themselves in behaviours such as aggression, tantrums, limited social skills and an inability to develop healthy & trusting relationships with adults.

In most cases, the children and youth entering the foster care system will have unique needs and require support and patience.
