Message from the Executive Director

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the WECAS web-site.  As the new Executive Director of WECAS, I look forward to working with the Society and Foundation Board of Directors, our staff, volunteers, foster parents and community partners to assure the highest caliber of service delivery to the children and families of Windsor-Essex County.

We monitor this web-site regularly to assure that the most current and relevant information is at your fingertips.  If you have an interest in joining our organization either by employment or pursuing opportunities available to become a foster parent or volunteer, just click on the appropriate link.  There are also updated and pertinent resources on how to contact us if you have a worry or concern about a child, youth or family.  We are here to help!  As always, we will be happy to expand on any of these areas by speaking with you in person.  Just go to our Contact Us link to find how to access the services you are enquiring about quickly and easily.

WECAS has had a rich history of supporting the safety and well-being of children and youth, by helping to strengthen their family, in collaboration with the community for over 119 years.  As one of 47 independently incorporated Children’s Aid Societies in Ontario, WECAS has been a leader in program development as well as cultural, race and gender inclusion.

I look forward to joining with our team in continuing this proud tradition and maintaining the goal of healthy and successful outcomes to all that we provide services.
