UNLEY, Australia, March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Key Assets, a 'not for profit' non-government fostering agency operating in South Australia, is providing carers with the opportunity to commit to fostering on a full time basis with 24-hour support and a rewarding fostering fee. This will enable carers to commit the time and attention that this fulfilling career deserves.
Working in partnership with the Department for Families and Communities, Key Assets provides foster care placements for a wide range of children and young people across South Australia. Through the delivery of Team Parenting, an approach based upon the delivery of therapeutic and holistic support services to the carer and the child, Key Assets provides positive fostering experiences for children and young people in out of home care.
With a large number of children and young people in out of home care in South Australia, Key Assets is committed to offering these children and young people opportunities for growth and a brighter future.
Key Assets foster carer, Tracy Ortmann describes her experience of fostering with the agency: "The high level of support and financial reimbursement provided by Key Assets made it an easy decision to give up my full time job and do what I love the most - helping children and young people."
Tracy adds: "The experience of becoming a foster carer has been so rewarding - I always knew I loved being a mum and the opportunity to become a foster carer allowed me to continue this task on a full time basis and give a child a much needed loving home.
"I get so much pleasure knowing I have given a child the opportunity to experience what family life should be. Just seeing the happiness on their faces when they feel like they are part of a family - you don't realise exactly how much these children have been deprived of. Of course, we have our good days and our bad days but to expect anything different is unrealistic when you consider what these children have been through. They deserve the chance at a normal, loving family life without trauma and I believe that if we can give just one child a chance at a positive future then we have achieved something."
Sue Brown, General Manager of Key Assets South Australia, adds: "I firmly believe that foster carers are the catalyst for a young person's improved outcomes and that they should be supported and encouraged so that children and young people in their care can achieve positive outcomes."
Key Assets is looking for foster carers throughout South Australia, including foster carers in Adelaide. The agency encourages anybody interested in fostering to get in touch by calling (08) 8274 5900 or visiting the website, www.keyassets.com.au.
