Adopt4Life–Ontario’s Association for kin, customary care, and adoptive parents and caregivers, is a community of people with lived experience that strengthens and empowers parents and caregivers to achieve permanency for children so that they reach their full potential. We believe all adoptive, kinship and customary care parents and caregivers have a right to advocacy, support and guidance throughout their lifelong journey.Vision Statement: We believe that all adoptive parents and kin and customary caregivers have a right to advocacy, support and guidance.
Funds raised will directly support families formed through adoption, kinship and customary care. When adoptive parents/caregivers are struggling; are working on forming secure attachments; helping their child through grief, loss and trauma; feeling isolated, alone and need help accessing critical supports and services for their children, Adopt4Life is there.
- Create videos and expand our online parenting resources to raise awareness of adoption issues, and to set up adoptive parents and permanent kinship caregivers for success.
- Create a respite program to prevent caregiver fatigue and train relatives and friends to help them succeed as a respite option, within a families circle of care.
