WHAT WE DO

The Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO) supports children and youth as they navigate through the child welfare system. Families involved with The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) are facing mental health challenges, poverty, or addiction, all of which can impact their ability to care for their children. CAFO gives access to educational, enrichment, and essential opportunities to these children and youth whose families need a little extra support

Children and Youth Supported Each Year

AREAS OF FOCUS

Education

Education truly is the key to one’s success. Part of our mission is to help make educational success a reality for children and youth in the child welfare system.

Cookie Jar

The majority of the work CAS Ottawa does is with children and youth living at home; however, there are few resources available to support these families. That’s where the Cookie Jar comes in.

Youth Transition

Entering foster care and leaving foster care are two stressful times in a child’s life. Our Foundation tries to make them as comfortable and prepared as possible to tackle these momentous life changes.

Enrichment

For some families, summertime and the holiday season are not happy times. Camp for Kids and the Holiday Gift Program exist to try and change that.
