Our Services

Protecting Children

Child protection is our ultimate responsibility where a child has been harmed or is threatened with physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse, or neglect.

Foster Care

Become a foster parent and brighten a child’s life with a temporary caring and supportive family environment.

Adoption

Adoption offers children and families the opportunity for permanence and families to experience all of the rewards that come with parenting a child.

Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton

Protecting children from neglect and abuse remains our top priority. Providing supports to families trying to meet the needs of their children, despite many personal and economic hardships, is an ongoing challenge for staff and volunteers. Meeting the many and varied needs of children in care is foremost in the minds of foster and adoptive parents. Many of our family services flourish because of the added contribution of caring volunteers.
