Five/Fourteen is the only foster agency dedicated solely to providing services and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, two-spirit, and otherwise gender-independent children and youth in foster care.

There are thousands of LGBTQ youth in care in Ontario. Yet, until we opened our doors in 2016, there still wasn’t a single designated safe placement for youth on the rainbow spectrum. Now with Five/Fourteen, an agency is dedicated entirely to their care.

An independent agency with established relationships and partnerships with existing social service agencies, the Government of Ontario, and university research centres, Five/Fourteen provides foster placement services and community integration support for youth in foster care who identify as LGBTQ or otherwise gender non-conforming. Five/Fourteen aims to create a path for our clients to move seamlessly from foster care to full independence with solid life skills and a supportive community.
