Walking in Balance with

Children, Youth and Families.

OUR APPROACH

Mountain Plains is a

non-profit agency that

has supported foster families within Edmonton since 1991.

We believe children and youth are best cared for in a family environment when they are not able to live with birth family or kin. We are committed to working as a team and strive to ensure that our families have a healthy, positive and supported fostering experience.

 

We continue to respond to the changing landscape of child intervention and work to meet the ongoing demand for out of home placement.  Providing supportive and responsive service delivery is our priority and maintain that our caregivers are our greatest resource.

 

We constantly strive to recruit caregivers who have a diversity of experience and backgrounds and are committed, flexible and child focused.  We work with families who are an active part of the community and are dedicated to developing their skills and abilities.

 

Our service holds an immerse responsibility in being a positive, safe, stable and supportive aspect in the lives of the families, children and youth we work with.
