The York Region Children's Aid Society works to keep children safe and families together by:
Providing child protection services 24 hours a day, seven days a week;
Engaging and supporting families at risk in problem solving;
Linking families with essential community services to ensure the best possible outcomes for families;
Providing prevention and awareness programs to keep children safe and families strong.
It is our goal, whenever possible, to maintain a child in the home or with extended family, but if this is not viable, children are placed in safe, nurturing environments, including foster homes.
