Program: Storey Homes has developed this specialized program in collaboration with Ottawa Children’s Aid Society, exclusively for Ottawa CAS’ children and youth. The program offers a short-term and longer-term placement for children and youth primarily between the ages of 10-18, however, referrals will reflect the program’s flexibility as placements will be based on matching children and youths based on developmental needs. All young people must be ambulatory, regardless of their cognitive, emotional, social and/or behavioural needs. Due to the complex needs presented by the referrals, the demands of this type of program are too much for a traditional parent model foster home. We offer a family like environment with the Foster Parent role and full-time Staff support. This allows the Foster Parent the breaks they need to be able to maintain their own healthy lifestyle and still provide a family like environment. This model strikes a balance between providing the youth with consistency and having the caregivers manage their self-care and personal family needs.
