Family & Children’s Services Of The Waterloo Region


Dec 31




What is this program?

Family & Children’s Services are looking for adults to provide short-term (approximately two to three weeks) care in their homes for children whose parents are unable to look after them because they are sick with COVID-19.

This is not foster care and you will not be a licensed foster parent, but would need to have a police check (for working with vulnerable people) and some experience in caring for children.

You will be expected to help the children keep in contact with their parents using technology.

As with their regular foster parents, Family & Children’s Services are looking for people from diverse cultures, religions and backgrounds.

You would receive a per diem payment while the child or children are in your home. The amount is approximately $44/day per child and is tax free.

To apply, please call a Recruitment Worker at 519-576-0540 or email at
