CCWR Decolonizing Foster Care: Recommendations for Foster Parents to Promote the Cultural and Relational Roots of Indigenous Children 2020
Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services Society (VACFSS) conducted a mixed-methods study to understand how foster parents engaged in an inclusive foster care model for Indigenous children and youth. This model of foster care focuses on supporting Indigenous children and youth to develop and/or maintain connections to their cultural and relational roots. Developed by staff, foster parents, birth parents, and elders, this model focuses on promoting children and youth well-being through collaboration of the child’s or youth’s circle, which includes members of the child’s or youth’s kinship family, foster parents, and social workers
