Aboriginal children have access to valuable cultural resources but often suffer due to poverty, community isolation, lack of social services infrastructure and higher living costs. When an investigation is triggered, First Nations children are five times more likely to be investigated and 12 times more likely to be placed in foster care than non-First Nations children.
Protego Foster Houses serves this group of very vulnerable aboriginal people.
We welcome all First nation families. We strive to make our foster homes a place where the love is felt and experienced and where peoples’ dignity and hope are restored.
In addition to our main reception house, we have two transition homes where extra vulnerable residents such as unaccompanied teens or single mothers may stay and receive longer term support.
In short, the Protego Foster Houses community serves as a “sponsor” by default for those who seek asylum in Canada and have no support system of their own.
We exist thanks to Canadians who care about the plight of refugees. We welcome your tangible support in helping us serve the “forgotten refugees” arriving on our doorstep daily. Thank you!
