October is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Last year, 165,673 referrals about possible abuse and neglect of children and youth were received by Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario and 47,925 families received ongoing protection services from a Children’s Aid Society after an investigation. Every Ontarian has a moral and legal role to play in protecting children and supporting vulnerable families in our communities. By being alert to the signs of abuse and knowing who to call to help a child at risk of harm, everyone can help prevent child abuse and neglect. It takes a community to keep children safe!

Welcome to the Hamilton CAS

Protecting Children & Strengthening Families

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

The agency also helps to build healthy families by working with parents to address concerns and resolve issues that impact on a child’s safety and well-being. The Society provides safe, nurturing environments for youngsters that cannot live at home for short-term and long-term periods.

We invite you to browse through our site to learn more about your duty to report suspected child abuse and neglect, the variety of services and programs we offer, the opportunities we provide to children in our care, how you can get involved as a volunteer, fostering with the Society, adoption and more.
