Foster Care

Aspen is one of Calgary’s leading providers of foster care services, connecting children unable to remain in their family homes with temporary care in safe, nurturing and supportive foster homes.

Our trained foster families provide a healthy home environment while supporting children and youth as they learn, grow and develop new skills. Aspen staff screen, train and provide ongoing support to all foster families, working hard to find the best fit for every child and family.

Aspen also offers permanency planning services to children and prospective adoptive families. Permanency planning increases knowledge, skills and confidence among caregivers and adoptive families around parenting children from diverse backgrounds who may have special needs and/or may face significant feelings of loss and grief. Our goal? Support and prepare children in their transition to permanent homes.

Who It's For:

Children and youth unable to reside in their family homes.

How to Access:

Referrals are made through the Placement Services Office at Ministry of Children's Services.
