People often mistakenly believe that children’s aid societies have a mandate to remove children from their homes; that is why they are reluctant to contact such an organization. In fact, 98% of the children we serve remain in their homes while we work with their families to improve their ability to keep children safe and thriving.
We need to remove a child from their home only 2% of the time to ensure their safety. In such a case, we place the child with a relative, foster family or other suitable home in preparation for his return home. When this is not possible, we consider possibilities of permanent placement with a relative or an adoptive family.
We provide services to Catholic children, youth and families living in Hamilton. We work with other community organizations to ensure our clients have full access to the help they need and contribute to the well-being of all children, youth and families in Hamilton.
Do not hesitate to ask us questions or ask for help.
