Congratulations to Eufracia (Perry) Bunao

2018 Excellence in Foster Care Award recipients.


Known by many as Aunty Perry, this fantastic, humble woman has been a house parent for Homes of Hope in Tauranga for almost 14 years. In her time there she has cared for over 50 children, aged between 2 months and 12 years.

With her empathetic and compassionate nature, Perry has been committed to the safety and well-being of every child in her care, while respecting the culture and identity of each child as an individual. She is a great team player, with good relationships with all the people involved in a child’s care and she is always learning new skills.

Perry is known for her ability to connect with children; with one child once under Perry’s care writing of how Perry “never made her feel like she was too much trouble” and always supported her by “spreading her joy”. With her acceptance and unconditional love, children in Perry’s care blossom.
