Welcome to the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton

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.
