Lifelong Connections

 Lifelong Connections

Indigenous and Métis kids in foster care need permanent relationships with adults from their communities.  The Lifelong Connections fund can help your organization make it happen.

What is it?

The Lifelong Connections fund provides support for events and activities that raise awareness of the need for permanency for Indigenous and Métis children and youth in foster care. 

Who can apply?

All Indigenous and Métis organizations in BC who provide child and family services are eligible to apply.

What is "permanency"?

When kids can’t live with their family, they need other adults to step in and provide permanency for them. Permanency means a child or youth has a secure place in a family and a lifelong commitment from at least one adult who can offer them love, guidance, a sense of belonging, and a connection to their culture and heritage. 

What's the deadline?

The application deadline is September 13th, 2017.
