Gloomy Picture On The State Of Foster Care

Gloomy Picture On The State Of Foster Care

Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer calls the revelations in the report on foster homes profoundly disturbing. She said the state of foster care in the province has been steadily worsening for two decades, but has never been addressed. Children's Advocate Marvin Bernstein says the Ministry of Social Services has breached the trust of many, including children, parents and foster-parents. Bernstein says in one case in Saskatoon, 21 kids are under one roof. The report also documents cases of physical, sexual, emotional and psychological abuse. The Saskatchewan Foster Families Association says it supports the 45 recommendations in the report.
