Forever Families of Canada exists to connect, equip and mobilize church communities to effectively care for vulnerable children and their families. We do this through 2 online streams: CarePortal & CareWell Academy

CarePortal: We build meaningful relationships with existing child-serving agencies/ministries and offer an online platform where identified needs within the community can be entered onto the platform by a case worker which notifies participating local churches of the opportunity. CarePortal disciples local churches in meaningful and relational opportunities to care, while empowering children and families with timely connections. Child welfare needs span from prevention, to temporary care (foster/kinship), to permanency (adoption), to caring for those aging out of care.

CareWell Academy: Empowering communities to find hope and healing, this collaborative of Christian professionals and ministries from across Canada are equipped to come alongside CarePortal communities with valuable training in 4 competencies: Trauma Care, Cultural Mindfulness, Understanding Poverty, & Healthy Collaboration. We desire to equip churches to move from good intentions to becoming well-informed & offer meaningful training supports that benefit community.
