Our Organizational History
Milestone Foster Homes (MFH) is a private, incorporated treatment foster care agency licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
The company was co-founded in 2000 by its president Brian Nero. In August 2001, Milestone proudly opened its first four-bed foster home serving male teens in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
Milestone quickly established itself as a major provider of treatment foster care services and, today is the largest in Ontario. In 2003 Ms. Leanne Harvey, M.S.W., R.S.W., transitioned from coordinating contract clinical/placement services to becoming a Managing Partner of the company.
Currently, Milestone operates over 120 foster homes – each with a capacity between 1-4 beds. Our foster homes are located across the GTA, as far North as Barrie, east to Bowmanville, and west to Hamilton and Brantford.
