Children’s Aid Society
Children’s Aid is an organization that has been around since 1912 that helps protect children and their well-being. Children’s Aid is really the voice for the children who can’t speak for themselves. Children’s Aid is funded by membership fees, government grants and other revenue producing activities so it is free of charge. A critical role of the Children’s Aid Society is promoting child welfare issues and showing them so they can influence public commitment and opinion into this issue
When children have come into the care of the Children’s Aid Society, it’s because it’s either voluntarily for a temporary time being or it’s by court order. CAS tries to promote as much as possible that if you see any kind of abuse in a household with a younger child to report it right away. Abuse being when a caregiver of a young child deliberately harms a child, this abuse can happen physically, sexually and emotionally. Neglect is a big form of abuse, when a child is left abandoned for days or even hours. If you notice any of these signs in a family it is required to call the CAS right away; you can contact Windsor Essex CAS at (519) 252-1171. Children's aid society workers will have the authority to investigate the claims and to protect the children with the right services.
When a child is placed in the care of CAS because of a serious concern usually they are placed in a foster home temporary. A foster home a safe place for the child to grow and mature in a stable home which is what a child always needs. A foster parent can be anyone who have an interest in children and young people, and they are also patient, kind and very welcoming. The ideal goal for the foster parents and the CAS is to remove everything harmful in the child’s home, while the child is in foster care, and once they feel that it’s safe to return home, the child will be reunited with his/her family.
