Tips & Information for Youth In Care
Being young can sometimes leave you feeling confused and angry about the situation that you are in but this does not mean it is your fault.
Sometimes family situations can change and make it hard or unsafe for youth to continue living in the same environment.
If child protection services feels that you are living in an unsafe or unhealthy environment, they may place you in care. This is only because you deserve to live in a healthy and thriving home.
“In care” means that you are either living in a foster home, group home, or placed with another family member for the time being while your parent/guardian receive the help and guidance that they need.
