Children’s Aid is in the opportunity business. Not only do we offer kids the chance to shine, but we provide parents and guardians, with the tools that they need to strengthen the family and advocate for themselves and their communities.
It’s a universal truth that parenting is a tremendous challenge. One of the most important things we do is provide parents and guardians of every kind with the supports they need to lead their families. Strong communities can play a powerful role in supporting families, and we partner with governments and other nonprofits to establish and build on a community’s strengths. Effective advocacy can generate increased funding and drive public policy in a direction that supports our children, youth, and families. External investments of money and time into our mission–at individual and corporate levels—have a dramatic impact on our outcomes.
