Su­per­man was raised by foster par­ents...

Life & Style Weekend - - WELCOME -

At IFYS Foster Care we know that be­long­ing is fun­da­men­tal to the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence and we all have an es­sen­tial need to be loved, cared for and be­long.

As hu­mans, we need to be­long. To one another, to our friends and fam­i­lies, to our cul­ture and coun­try, to our world. Be­long­ing is pri­mal, fun­da­men­tal to our sense of hap­pi­ness and well-be­ing.

When a child is brought into care they can be con­fused, scared and un­sure of what the fu­ture holds, they can feel that they don’t be­long.

At IFYS Foster Care we ac­knowl­edge chil­dren and young peo­ple need to be­long, they need to feel that they re­ally mat­ter to some­body, some­where. A con­nec­tion with at least one car­ing adult can make a huge dif­fer­ence in the life of a child or young per­son.

In the words of Rita Pier­son - Ev­ery child de­serves a cham­pion – an adult who never gives up on them, who un­der­stands the power of con­nec­tion and in­sists that they be­come the best that they can pos­si­bly be.

...Are you pre­pared to be a cham­pion and help raise the next su­per­hero?
