Join a Professional Powerhouse of Solutions

For more than 160 years, Children’s Aid has been working to ensure that no child’s potential is limited by the barriers of poverty. In recent years, we have sharpened our focus, strengthened infrastructure, and sought out continuous, data-supported improvement throughout our organization to maximize the impact we are having on the children and youth we serve.

Children’s Aid is a professional powerhouse of solutions for young people. We are teachers and social workers, coaches and health care providers, administrators and data analysts. We know what it takes to ensure children grow up strong and healthy, and ready to thrive in school and life: excellent education and health care, social-emotional support, and strong, stable families.

It takes a team of extraordinary talent to produce the kind of impact to which we aspire. We are committed to recruiting and retaining staff who will embrace our goals and promote a results-oriented culture. Children's Aid is a place for talented individuals to engage in the battle on childhood poverty.

"At Children's Aid, I have the opportunity to be a voice for the children, youth, and families whose voices often aren’t heard, and advocate on issues and priorities that most affect our children and families. While I do not provide direct services, I feel a genuine connection to all the families we serve.

"Children's Aid has afforded me the opportunity to care for medically fragile children within the foster care system and the community, which has always been the biggest reward to me. Each day I work alongside a team of caring and dedicated colleagues to serve our population. By being able to treat these children in both a clinic and home setting, it has given me a much broader understanding of my patients’ medical needs and what I can do for their overall quality of life."
