KFFNM Response to Covid-19
Dear Kinship/Foster Parents, Colleagues and Collaterals,
The Board and Staff of The Kinship & Foster Family Network of Manitoba have been closely following the recommendations from The Province of Manitoba and Public Health officials in response to Covid-19. In order to do our part to help mitigate the risks, The Kinship & Foster Family Network has decided to enact our Pandemic Continuity of Operations Plan effective March 17th 2020. This plan will remain in effect until April 12th, 2020. We plan to remain fully operational except for face to face meetings. Some key points to note are:
1. All training sessions are currently postponed until further notice.
2. The way you access the Peer Support Program will not change. Please continue to call us at 204-940-1280 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Our phone lines have been redirected. KFFNM Staff will be continuing their duties and be accessible via telephone and email as they work remotely from home.
Thank you all for the work you do to support children and families in need of support. Please call us if we can be of assistance.
Who We Are
The Kinship & Foster Family Network of Manitoba is a non-profit, charitable organization focused on grassroots community development opportunities to enhance the lives of kinship and foster families. Through a province-wide network, kinship and foster parents receive training, guidance and assistance, often provided by other kinship/foster parents within the community.

The Peer Support Program is an initiative designed to provide support to foster parents by foster parents. These network-trained foster parents are referred to as Peer Support Providers. Peer Support Providers have first-hand knowledge of the increasingly complex challenges to providing care to children and they have been trained in ways to provide assistance in a knowledgeable and healthy manner.
