To help raise awareness, we are selling t-shirts!
Over the years, Children’s Aid Society has meant different things to different people. When it was a residential placement, you may have called it home. You may credit Children’s Aid Society for helping you expand your family through adoption. Perhaps you took classes to help you learn new parenting techniques that eventually helped you regain custody of your children. Maybe your role was to foster a child until they were able to return to their birth family. Some of you have been changed by our mentoring program, whether you were a mentor or a mentee. Maybe your memories of Children’s Aid Society consisted of our mental health workers coming to your home to help your family reconnect and overcome obstacles. Hundreds of children have passed through the doors of our daycare; some stayed until they started kindergarten, and some continued to attend the after-school program. Children’s Aid Society has been a part of so many of your lives, and we recognize the difference you have made in our lives as well. We thank you for trusting us to be a part of your life whether it was for a few months or several years. Programs have changed and evolved, but our general goal has remained the same over the years: to support families and children. I look forward to seeing what 2023 has in store for us all.
