Foster Home






The Foster Home has been in operation since May 2004.  

The Algonquins of Pikwakanagan extend a Chi Meegwetch (Thank you) to all who helped support this endeavor. 

We are in search for Aboriginal foster parents who are licensed, or individuals who are willing to take the training to become foster parents.

Pikwakanagan Foster Home
Foster parents work together with Pikwakanagan Child & Family Services/ Family & Children’s Services of Renfrew County staff to develop a plan for each child in care.

The ideal plan is usually to reunite a young person with his or her family. When a reunion is not possible, the plan may require long-term foster care.

Foster families play an essential role in the child's daily life. The stable and caring home environment that foster families provide helps encourage healthy growth and development. 

We are also looking for individuals who would be interested in providing our current Foster Parent with respite care.
