Funding

The province of Ontario provides public funds to the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society (CAS) to provide all services as mandated under the Child and Family Services Act. The Society receives government funding for the provision of services that it is legally required to provide to protect children from abuse and neglect.

CAS funding is provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. Their mandate is to:

  • Fund and monitor children’s aid societies
  • Develop policies to support the child welfare program
  • License children’s group homes and foster homes

In order to offer supplementary programs the Society relies on the generosity of the community. Children involved with the Kawartha-Haliburton CAS directly benefit from the fund-raising activities initiated by the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation who sponsor special programs and offer those “extra” services that bring enjoyment to young people. Some of the programs funded by the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation are:

  • Abuse prevention and parent support groups
  • Camp
  • Recreational events for children in care
  • Bursaries for post-secondary educations
  • Sports equipment and registrations
  • Special needs equipment for children with disabilities

Continued community support helps the children experience the richness of childhood and opens doors to opportunities that will support their development.
