The Alternative Care Unit assists member Agencies with placement resources for children and youth.
The Southern Network is committed to assisting our member Agencies in matching children who need temporary care outside of their immediate homes with appropriate resources for the children’s needs and to assist with keeping siblings together whenever possible.
Our first option for placement is always with family.
The Southern Network and our member Agencies work in partnership with third party resources to match children accordingly and will profile each child who may need extra supports in a placement type.
Changes to foster homes managed by B & L Resources
On August 20, 2020, the Province of Manitoba gave notice to B&L Inc. indicating it will no longer be utilizing B & L Resources Inc. as a foster care provider. Foster homes managed by B & L Resources were all licensed by Winnipeg Child and Family Services (CFS). The SFNNC is supporting the transition of these homes to their recommended agencies.
If you would like further information please follow the link to the Province of Manitoba’s website or you can also call 204-945- 2923 to speak to a member of the transition team.
