Building Capacity to Ensure Service Excellence
Volunteer & Foster Parent – Recruitment, Recognition & Retention
FACS Niagara relies on the contributions of approximately 150 foster homes and over 200 active volunteers to provide safe temporary homes and a variety of support services such as tutoring, mentoring and transportation to local children and families in need.
Two events are held each year to honour and recognize the time, commitment and dedication these people offer to our children, youth and families.
A Celebration of Caring –Each April, during Volunteer Appreciation week, FACS Niagara recognizes the substantial contributions of these individuals by hosting an awards and appreciation dinner.
FACS Night at the IceDogs – October is Foster Parent Appreciation Month and we just like in April, we celebrate foster parents and volunteers who contribute so much to Niagara’s children and families at a Niagara Ice Dogs game.
