Ontario’s Children’s Aid Societies (CAS’s) are not-for-profit agencies that protect children from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect. For more than 100 years in Ontario, these Societies have been keeping children safe, helping parents build healthy families and providing safe and nurturingenvironments for young people.
Children and Youth growing up in their Families, Cultures and Communities
We believe the best place for kids to grow up is their own family. That’s why our primary goal is to keep families in crisis together. If that’s not possible we will turn first to extended family for help. Foster care will always be a last resort and temporary as we search for permanency and connection to family. If a child must be permanently separated from their parents, then we will find them a permanent home and family through adoption. We’ll preserve and promote the culture and community of the child’s family. They will know where they come from and who they are connected to. Every child in our care will experience a safe and nurturing family. That’s what our vision means.
