At Pathfinders, Foster Care Week is a time to reflect on and celebrate the remarkable individuals who form our team of carers. Their unwavering commitment, selflessness, and compassion are truly humbling.
Our carers open their homes, their hearts, and their lives to give back to the community in the most selfless way. They play an indispensable role in the lives of children and young people who, for various reasons, can’t be with their families. Beyond providing our young people with their daily needs, our carers serve as a vital safety net during these children’s most vulnerable times.
What sets our carers apart is the unconditional love, kindness, and care they offer. These qualities make an incredible difference in the lives of many. For children who have experienced trauma and uncertainty, knowing they have a reliable and caring presence in their lives is a source of immeasurable comfort.
It’s no secret that it takes different types of carers to care for all types of kids. We are immensely proud of diversity of our carers that make up our team. Regardless of their cultural backgrounds, marital status, gender identities, or financial circumstances, our carers step up day and night to provide a safe and nurturing home for a child or young person when they need it most.
During Foster Care Week and every day, we want our carers to know we appreciate the dedication and love that they all bring to their roles. They are the unsung heroes of our community, and their impact is immeasurable.
To all the Pathfinders Carers, we couldn’t be prouder of the vital work you do. You are the heart and soul of our mission, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being the extraordinary people you are.
