“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” – Helen Keller.
There is no quote more fitting than this classic from Helen Keller that describes the work of child welfare. Keeping children safe and strengthening families can only be done through partnership. So at Peel CAS we have made building and sustaining positive, collaborative relationships a priority. Our work continues to be increasingly complex and involves social issues such as poverty, domestic violence, custody and access, mental health, and substance abuse. Together with our community, Peel CAS strives to ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families facing complex social issues.
Our 2018-19 Annual Report highlights our partnerships and features stories about the resilency and success of our youth, the amazing dedication and passion of our foster and kin caregivers, a family supported by the Child Welfare Immigration Centre of Excellence and innovative work with the Black Community Action Network of Peel, Indus Community Services and The Indigenous Network.
