It’s a salute to all the contributions of foster families across the province.
Foster Families Week continues through Saturday.
The Saskatchewan Foster Families Association is running a number of recruitment drives across the province to encourage people to learn more about becoming a foster parent.
Executive Director Deb Davies says this week is about saying thank you to all those who have opened their homes and hearts to children and families in need.
When children come into care, they need a place to call home – no matter the length of their stay.
Social Services Minister Paul Merriman encourages anyone interested to contact the association to learn more about helping vulnerable children and youth.
He says it’s one of the best ways people can give back to their communities.
