Foster Families Are Needed Now

An Open Letter From The Executive Director of KHCAS


KHCAS In Your Community

The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society has been part of the community since 1892, helping to build healthy families by working with parents and community partners to address concerns and resolve issues that impact on a child’s safety and well-being.

We work with organizations across the region, providing child protection and family support programs to the City of Peterborough, County of Peterborough, City of Kawartha Lakes, and Haliburton County.

The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is a not-for-profit agency that, by law, is required to protect children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and neglect.

October is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Every October, OACAS and Children’s Aid Societies raise awareness about how to identify and help prevent child abuse. One of the campaign’s key goals is to educate communities and key partners about how calling a Children’s Aid Society is one of the most effective ways to prevent child abuse. As part of this campaign OACAS and member CASs work closely with school boards, schools, and community partners on a provincial “DRESS PURPLE DAY.”

Foster

Children and youth thrive when they are living in safe, predictable and supportive families. When children and youth are not able to live at home, the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is committed to strengthening opportunities for family-based care – foster parents provide such an opportunity.

Adoption

There are many children in Ontario who are waiting for an adoptive family. Children come into our care for various reasons, but all of them are in need of someone to care about them, and provide a stable and nurturing home to grow up in.
