It’s All About Kids

How Far You’ve Come: Profiles of Former Children in Care Video series

What becomes of children in care when they grow up?

We are pleased to share the stories of former children in care who went on to become successful adults. Through on-camera interviews, North Central Alberta CFS invited them to tell their story in their own words and share it publicly. No matter how different their stories and personal circumstances, one aspect of their lives rang true for each of these now successful adults: they had someone who cared for them. Their lives were enriched—and in some instances, saved—because a social worker, a foster parent, a teacher, a mentor or some caring adult helped them along the way. Their stories remind us that we all have a role in helping children reach their full potential.
