Make time for play! Play is essential to development. It contributes to the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. Playing allows kids to create and explore a world they can master, conquering their fears while practicing adult roles.
What we do, does make a difference. This poem was written recently by a 12 year old girl who relied on the consistent love and support of a very special therapeutic foster care family that stayed involved with her throughout many extremely tough times. #satori #makeadifference ... See MoreSee Less

At Satori we believe that all children have an equal right to care and we provide an environment that promotes the safety and well- being of the LGBTQ youth in our care. While we currently have a number of LGBTQ foster parents and support several LGBTQ kids the need is always there. It can be difficult finding safe homes where these kids can flourish and grow to their full potential.

What is therapeutic parenting? High structure, high nurture, intentional parenting that fosters feelings of safety and connectedness so that a traumatized child can begin to heal and attach. At Satori Homes Therapeutic Foster Care we support and educate our foster parents, leaving them with the tools they need to break the cycle. The love of one adult can change a child's future and that of generations to follow. To learn more visit www.satorifoster.ca

As a foster parent, you are not the original plan for these children. Somehow their story got derailed and you are stepping in to walk with them along a path of healing. We train you to listen and respond to the language of trauma. You will never fully understand but you can make a huge difference in their future. #traumainformed #informedparenting #breakthecycle #makeadifference #fosterparents #satori ... See MoreSee Less
If you are a teacher, you WILL teach children who have been traumatized. What might seem like random, nonsensical or manipulative behaviors in a child, might actually be rooted in a space called ‘FEAR’ and pain. The emotional backpack they carry to school each day is one that they cannot set outside your classroom door, and it will remain heavy and forefront in their brain. At Satori we train all foster parents to be trauma informed. #backtoschool #traumainformed #informedparenting #breakthecycle #makeadifference #fosterparents #satori ... See MoreSee Less
Knowledge is power, and the more a foster family knows, the better equipped the foster parents are at being able to provide intentional, nurturing guidance and care to children. At Satori, we provide ongoing training and support to all care givers. This increases the success rate of our placements and results in longer lasting, deeper connections between the kids and foster parents.
