Foster Care


Caring for a child or teen until their parent(s) can resume full responsibility, or until another permanent home is found. Foster Parent(s) make a commitment to help a child or teen through a difficult period, provide love and guidance, and then let go.


If you are overwhelmed, sad, confused, alone, unhappy, afraid, thinking of suicide, homeless, addicted, in a bad relationship, or just think you need to talk to someone, we want to help. Talking to someone can help during periods of extreme stress, or when emotions are strong and you need someone to someone to help you sort things out.

Youth Programs

PERSAD Center provides services to prevent and respond to the negative outcomes that can occur when affirming support is not present. We also work with families and other allies to help them provide support for these youth. 

Our Youth Program services include:


Safe Spaces – Suicide Prevention

PERSAD'S Safe Spaces program engages youth in creating their own outreach projects to help reduce the incidence of suicide and depression among their peers.
