“As Foster Care Month draws to a close, DCFS Foster Care Team is delighted to announce the success of our recent ‘Foster Bermuda’s Future’ recruitment drive held at Gorham’s Ltd. On May 24, 2023, our recruitment drive provided a platform for the community to learn about foster care and foster parenting, aiming to support the Department of Child & Family Services’ ongoing efforts to recruit more foster parents.” said Foster Care Coordinator, Mrs. Selena Simons.

Mrs. Simons added, “Our information table was filled with valuable resources and literature pertaining to foster care and foster parenting. Visitors had the opportunity to engage with knowledgeable social workers and gain insights into the profound impact they can make on a child’s life by becoming foster parents.”


“Our “Foster Bermuda’s Future” campaign was launched in celebration of Foster Care Month, and has been celebrated in the community. One of our first initiatives involved vibrant bus banners displayed on Bermuda’s public transportation, raising awareness and inspiring potential foster parents to take action.”

“In addition, DCFS Foster Care Team organised Kinship Care Training and the highly anticipated annual Foster Parents Appreciation Tea to honour Bermuda’s remarkable and devoted foster families.”

“On behalf of the Government, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Gorham’s Ltd. for their support in our mission to foster Bermuda’s future,” said the Minister of Social Development and Seniors Tinee Furbert. “We are deeply appreciative of all those who visited the recruitment drive at Gorham’s Ltd.”

“With May recognised as Foster Care Month, it is a reminder for all residents of Bermuda to open their hearts and homes to help shape a brighter future for vulnerable children. The DCFS Foster Care Team urges individuals and families across the island to consider becoming foster parents and make a meaningful difference in the lives of children in need.”

Minister Furbert concluded, “To learn more about fostering and to explore opportunities to get involved, please reach out to Foster Care Coordinator, Selena Simons, email smsimons@gov.bm or call 294-5871.
