NL Foster Families Association Silent Auction June 1-10th
The Newfoundland and Labrador Foster Families Association (NLFFA) has a mandate to advance and promote the professional role of Foster Parents and to be a collective voice for Foster Families throughout our province. The Association works in partnership with all stakeholders within the foster care program to meet the needs of Foster Families and to enhance the care and support provided to children in care and their families. The NLFFA has responsibilities in the areas of education, recruitment, retention, support, and advocacy. The Newfoundland and Labrador Foster Families Association is a non-profit organization with three staff who cover the entire province of Newfoundland and Labrador and, as such, resources are often limited.
Besides supporting foster families and community outreach, we present in the school system. The Different Kinds of Families school presentation was implemented by the Newfoundland and Labrador Foster Families Association to provide information about how families are the same and how they are different. It talks about reasons that children come into care, the reality that not all children live with their birth family and aids in removing some of the stigma that we still hear about foster families.
Our online auction is our main fundraiser for the year. It will run from June 1, 2023, to June 10, 2023, closing at 3pm. All proceeds will assist the NLFFA to continue and expand programming to assist families and children/youth in our communities.
