Have you been to the African Lion Safari? They have opened with safety measures in place. It is a super fun way to spend the day with family.
As we navigate the stages of reopening this summer keeping the kids busy can be a challenge. Here is a list of some fun things to do in the Waterloo Region. We recommend checking with individual businesses about any changes to operation or hours.
When fostering don't underestimate the importance of biological parents. Your foster children’s birth parents/family aren’t bad people. In most cases, they have made some bad choices or are struggling with something outside of their control and need help and time. They want to parent their children well. The team at Satori provides many resources, training, and ongoing support to help you manage this relationship in a way that is best for everyone involved.
To learn more, reach out to us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about fostering children and youth in your community.

Are you taking time for yourself? As a foster parent, you are expected to be at your best. If you are burnt out, exhausted or feeling broken, you will feel ineffective. Make sure you schedule time for yourself. Spend it with a friend or treat yourself to some alone time with a good book. You deserve it!
Are you ready to become a foster parent? There are children in our community that need a stable, loving and nurturing place to call home. With your love and guidance, you can change the life of a child in the foster care system.
