The Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society is dedicated to the wellbeing and safety of every child by advocating for, and partnering with, our children, families and communities.

The Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society is operated by a Board of Directors who support the mission and objectives of the Society and who are dedicated to advocating for quality services for children and families. Board members have a specific interest in the welfare of children and offer individual skills to assist in running the agency. This agency has been in existence since 1899 and is dedicated to strengthening the family unit.

The Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society has a dedicated team of staff with diverse backgrounds and skills. In addition to staff, we also rely on the support of our foster homes and volunteers. This unique group of individuals provides support in all areas of the Society's work and assist with direct service to children & families.
