Fostering & Kin

Our Agency’s philosophy today can be expressed in no better terms than this quote from a letter written in 1930 by the staff of the Children’s Aid Society of Brant:

“In such cases, it is our policy to remove cause rather than remove children and if possible to make home conditions suitable for young children and the children removed only as a last resort.”


FamilyEvery effort is made to keep children within their families of origin. When this is not possible, other family members or community friends are sought next. Temporary placement in a Foster home is considered while permanency options are researched.

“The child is my niece and I know her life history. It’s been a very difficult life. I love her and we’ve been through a lot together and I hope that I’m giving her a loving home”.
