Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton COVID-19 Update

The Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton (CCASH) is committed to the health and wellbeing of its staff, partners, children, youth and families that we serve and are taking precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

In response to the current state of emergency lockdown, the Province of Ontario has identified children’s aid societies as an essential service.  We are continuing to deliver services but in order to maintain social distancing we are limiting access to our building. During this period, the CCASH will continue to provide in person services including facilitating parent/child contact during access visits.  Staff are working remotely during this time and are accessible via phone and email. If you have a concern about the safety or well-being of a child or youth or if your family is in need of support, please call 905-525-2012 or our French Services Line at 1-855-550-3571. After-hours at 905-522-8053.

We hope that everyone is staying healthy as we continue to see an increase in COVID-19 cases in our community. Let us work together to do our part to stop the spread.
