Urgent appeal: seeking foster families for young anglophones

The Direction de la protection de la jeunesse (DPJ) Batshaw is actively seeking 40 foster families for young anglophones from the communities of Montréal-Nord, Rivière-des-Prairies, Montréal Est, Verdun, Lachine and LaSalle.

To be eligible, these families must be anglophone or bilingual, reside on the Island of Montréal and meet certain criteria. The profiles of the young people requiring placement are varied: siblings, babies, children and adolescents, anglophones, allophones, and members of Indigenous communities.

The Director of Youth Protection and Provincial Director, Linda See, as well as psychologist and Director of the Youth Program, Katerine Moxness, are available to provide additional information.

Information sessions and support are provided by DPJ Batshaw to assist and inform interested families.

For more information or to express your interest, consult the website of the Montreal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre or call 514-989-1885, ext. 1139.
