The Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton, in collaboration with the Board of Directors, has developed an Equity Statement. Our goal is to have the words that are written transform into accountable action and not be performative.
No matter the race, colour, religion, place of origin, ancestry, creed, family status, marital status, citizenship, disability/differently abled, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and/or age – each person deserves compassion, respect and support. Discrimination is not tolerated.
We continue to work towards making meaningful change both within the walls of our agency and out in the community . There is still much work to do, and look forward to the strides we have yet to make to ensure that each individual we serve feels empowered, respected and safe.
