Foster and Kinship Program
Althea Projects, Foster and Kinship Program
Althea Projects Foster and Kinship Program is a foster and kinship care support service for children who are subject to departmental intervention. This program is a licensed service funded by the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs. In plain language Althea Projects Foster and Kinship Program supports Foster and Kinship Carers who have children placed with them from the Department of Child Safety.
Sadly, there are too many Queensland kids who can’t live at home because it is not safe for them to do so. To paint a picture as at 30/06/2019 there were 10,248 children living in out of home care. This is more than a 10% increase over the past 5 years. These are the children that we place with our foster carers.
