Seasons Greeting, QPI Partners and Friends!

As 2021 comes to an end, we want to take a moment to thank you for your commitment and support of the children and youth in foster care. While this year has seen challenges, we have also seen much progress. Together we have worked to ensure every child has the most important support – loving and nurturing parenting. We have advocated to ensure that children’s individual developmental, education, health, housing, and mental and physical health needs were prioritized, and that every child received the love and care they deserve.
