Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton

Protecting children from neglect and abuse remains our top priority. Providing supports to families trying to meet the needs of their children, despite many personal and economic hardships, is an ongoing challenge for staff and volunteers. Meeting the many and varied needs of children in care is foremost in the minds of foster and adoptive parents. Many of our family services flourish because of the added contribution of caring volunteers.
