Finding Permanency for Children/Youth in Care Project

Achieving permanency for children and youth placed in out-of-home care enables them to form loving, consistent relationships, a sense of connectedness and belonging to their family and community, and a stable place that they call ‘home’. Permanency is critical to the well-being of placed children and youth now and in the future. This proposed study examines the outcomes for children/youth placed in permanent arrangements and their (new) families as a result of the Family Finders pilot project at Family and Children’s Services of Guelph and Wellington County.
