Guided by Catholic values and teachings, we serve and offer bilingual (English/French) services to children, youth, and families within the Hamilton community to protect their safety and well being, strengthen families, and nurture lifelong relationships. We pride ourselves on our strong record of working collaboratively with families; in 97% of cases, children remain with their families while we work with their caregivers to strengthen their capacity to keep children safe and help them to thrive.
We value: success for children, youth and families; compassion and caring for one another and the people we serve; equity and inclusion; social justice; family, church, and community partnerships; transparent communication and collaboration; shared accountability.
Read about some of our amazing foster parents. They are an inspiration, but don’t be intimidated! Foster parents come from all walks of life, and have many different life stories. They share the desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
Effective January 1, 2020, a new privacy law comes into effect. We are committed to promoting privacy and protecting the confidentiality of the personal information about the families we serve.
A number of youth who received service from CCAS Hamilton share their very personal stories about the support and assistance they’ve received and the positive impact the agency had in their lives.
