Sue and Dale McPherson

Fifteen years ago, Sue and Dale McPherson took the suggestion of those around them and became Foster Parents. Little did they know that they would be Calgary Region’s Foster Family of the Year in 2020.

Jennifer Hrstic

When Children’s Services Worker Jennifer Hrstic was first told she was Calgary Region’s Worker of the Year, she was humbled by it, saying, “It’s lovely to know that what you’ve been a part of has helped them too.”

660 News Interview

We have a long-standing tradition in Calgary of gathering today at City Hall to watch our flag being raised in honour of all of you, followed by a luncheon and spending time together. This year our flag is still being flown today, but we are not gathering like we usually do. It has been a challenging year for most families, but for you, our Foster and Kinship families, we know the extra challenges you have had and continue to navigate.
