Established in 1970, we have recently celebrated 50 years in foster care!
We believe we were one of the first private foster care agencies in Ontario! With over 50 years of experience, Nairn Family Homes is no newcomer to the field of child welfare and we have served hundreds of children and adolescents with various needs. Nairn Family Homes began in 1970 under the design and leadership of Ed and Agnes Driediger. In 1987, with the retirement of Ed and Agnes Driediger from the ownership of the program, a different license was issued to new owners Mike Chalmers and Phillip A. Bruce. Mike Chalmers in turn, retired in July 1996 and Phillip and Alice Bruce assumed full ownership of the program.
