BCFFPA has created a documentary-style video to be used for recruitment of new foster parents across the Province. We hope that you feel it’s a good representation of your experiences as a foster parent. Thank you, from all of us at BCFFPA, for the valuable and difficult work you do and for your commitment to BC’s young people.
The Board of Directors has chosen a new brandmark to reflect the vision and future direction of BCFFPA. The logo symbolizes strength, balance, grounding, roots, commonality, diversity and being an integrated part of the whole. The logo was created by a BC designer and is based on the belief that foster families are a branch of the family tree. In the coming months, this new logo will be in use on letterhead and materials you receive from BCFFPA and we will be launching a new website featuring the logo and an updated image. We hope you like it as much as we do!
