Fostering Futures is CatholicCare Wollongong's new Permanency Support Program, previously known as Out of Home Care. It has been introduced as part of sweeping reforms across NSW in October 2017 aimed at finding forever homes for children and improving the system.
Fostering Futures’ priority is to find safe, permanent families for children to give them a sense of belonging, rather than being fostered which can seem more temporary.
CatholicCare Wollongong has been providing Foster Care for over 25 years.
These children have had a tough start to life but with the support of agency staff and carers working together as a team, they can reach their full potential. We’re always on the lookout for potential carers who can share their homes and lives and make a positive impact on a child’s future for a short time or for a lifetime.
