Welcome to the New Brunswick Foster Families Association’s web site. Please take some time to explore its different aspects as each has been created to assist and inform foster families. A special thank you to the executive and directors of the NBFFA for the countless volunteer hours that each gives to the success of your association. Its goal is to “Enhance Foster Care in NB” with a vision that local foster families will be respected and empowered to better facilitate the best environment for children in care. It is important that all children have a right to a safe, nurturing home environment and that their basic needs as a person be met. Foster parents in N.B. play a vital role in enabling the children placed in their care to reach their full potential. The NBFFA is there to assist all foster families in achieving their responsibilities. The NBFFA will continue to work as a professional team to promote and enhance foster care in N.B. Several goals for the near future are to continue to liaison with government officials to advocate for foster parents needs and concerns and to assist with the ongoing issue of recruitment and retention of foster homes through out the province. Local associations are key to assisting and supporting foster homes and the NBFFA will continue to help strengthen these groups so that all areas of the province have strong support systems. Finally, an area to explore is to offer support to those families who take on the role of adopting children in/from care. As an association we could be an advocate and support to these families as an addition to other supports that are presently out there. A special thank you to the foster parents of N.B. for all that you do for the children that are entrusted to you and for the support that you give to each other. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact any of us at the NBFFA so that we may assist you. Regards, Kevin W. Kiley President, NBFFA
