Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions is a Child Welfare (Simcoe & Muskoka) and Children’s Mental Health (Muskoka only) agency licensed by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. We support children, youth, families and communities with multiple services including fostering for children and youth up to 18 years old.
Our agency has an urgent need for foster parents across Simcoe and Muskoka. We are looking for diverse caregivers who understand children’s needs. Children & Youth lose so much when they have to leave their community. Foster caregivers provide a safe home and a temporary solution for children and youth, while their families make the changes needed for them to come back home.
Would you consider opening your home and heart to providing care to youth and children? Fostering can be challenging, but it’s a very rewarding career. You don’t have to be perfect to make a difference in the life of a child. Fostering can be flexible and fit in with your lifestyle!
We encourage all applicants to apply regardless of sex, gender, marital status, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, orientation or religion.
Our application process and training program are very detailed, and may seem daunting, but please don't let that stop you from choosing a career in fostering. We find that all successful foster parents believe that the rewards of fostering, including building strong, loving relationships that last a lifetime, far outweigh the challenges involved.
We look forward to hearing from you! Please share with anyone you think might be interested!

Bench Warmers are friendly people who allow others to engage in conversation in either parks or malls. Studies show that loneliness has the same dire consequences on physical health as smoking a pack a day! Social connection is so needed (and often lost in the shuffle of busyness and technology) and MatureMinds Friendship Bench offers an opportunity for interaction and social engagement. The implementation is simple but the results are deep and meaningful. Volunteers will receive training in active listening, self care, mental health awareness, and ageism. After successfully completing the training, volunteers become Bench Warmers. They sit on a bench either at a park or in a mall with a sign that says "If you want to talk, I want to listen." Be part of the cure for the loneliness epidemic! Become a Bench Warmer.
In 2015, we ran our first ever Butt Blitz — an action-oriented campaign focused on raising public awareness about cigarette litter, while simultaneously removing as much of it from the environment as possible.
Cigarette butts account for 1 in 5 pieces of litter found at our cleanups. These small plastic filters are one of the most common forms of litter globally and when not disposed of properly, they cause negative impacts on local ecosystems, wildlife, and human health.
We’re calling on volunteers from across Canada to pick up cigarette butts in their local communities, then send them to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. The social impact of this event is just as important as the environmental impact, as it helps prevent cigarette butt litter from ending up on the ground in the future!
We are looking for Butt Blitz Volunteers in communities across Canada to join us in picking up butts locally throughout the month of April. Join a local team, or take part wherever you are!
The Butt Blitz will run from April 1st to 30th, 2023. Our goal is to collect and remove 1 million cigarette butts over the course of a month!
As a Butt Blitz Volunteer, you are dedicating your time throughout April to help reduce the amount of cigarette litter in your local community and create a safer, healthier environment.
All you need to participate is a pair of gloves, an up-cycled container (e.g., old yogurt tub) to collect your butts in, and an interest to improve your local environment!
Volunteer Responsibilities: - Review and understand the Butt Blitz Volunteer Information Package - Sign a virtual Liability Waiver - Participate in cigarette litter cleanups to contribute to the overall goal of removing 1 million cigarette butts - Drop off your cigarette butt collection to a local team coordinator (or mail in your own collection if participating independently) - Attend virtual team meetings via Zoom (optional; 3 in total, max 30 minutes in length) - Attend a team Butt Blitz cleanup locally (optional) If this opportunity interests you, please fill out the form below!
