The Children. Sometimes children are referred by child welfare agencies specific to a certain religion or culture: we have had Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Native children in our care. These problems might include: violence, substance abuse, homelessness, mental health issues, abusive parenting methods, to name a few. Of course, the children struggle with the results of abuse, neglect, abandonment, and chaotic living situations. You may see these behaviours in foster homes:. In every case, these children deserve to live free from the fear of being abused or abandoned.
Carpe Diem tends to specialize in children from birth to approximately 10 years of age. Many of our foster children, however, have grown up within our family system, so of course we also deal with teenagers adolescents. We now offer programs for 18 year old crown wards who are ill equipped to live on their own: Independence Preparation Groups, and a semi-independent home for low functioning youth. A Brief History. By June 1, there were 40 children in 17 homes. As a result, Carpe Diem expanded into different geographical areas and new staff was hired in those areas.
By adding homes and staff slowly but surely, we now have over children in over 70 homes. A future where the children and youth we serve have the strength and resilience to create a lifetime of their own unstoppable successes. Together with our community of dedicated donors and supporters, we are helping them move from surviving to thriving, and empowering them to break the cycle of abuse and neglect they were born into through no fault of their own.
We fill the gaps between what the government is able to provide and what vulnerable young people need to move confidently forward and create a bold vision of success for themselves. The founding partnership 40 years ago, continues to be our strongest and largest today. Together with the generosity of our donors, we look forward to continuing this rich legacy in the years to come, and to building a better, stronger Canada one child at a time. Since , the Foundation has been strategically raising funds, providing grants, and developing programs that are delivered in partnership with 74 child- and youth-serving partners at a local, regional, and national level, with the objective of reaching the unique and diverse population of young people involved in child welfare.

We are not directly involved in child protection, or investigation or apprehension, nor are we involved in the policies, practices, or governance of child welfare agencies. We do not receive government funding.
The programs and services we fund are made possible entirely through the generosity of our donors. The government provides most of the basic life necessities for children and youth in care to age But all kids need more than the basics to thrive — and kids in care face many additional barriers.
