Cheryl Sprague, President

Joining the Board of Directors of the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation has provided me the privilege of supporting children who need our help. I feel that all of us can assist in some way  to help improve the quality of life for these children. I am honored to be a part of it. 

 

Sophia Chisholm, Vice-President

My family and I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to realize their dreams and fulfill their potential in life.  The heart and soul of the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board is anchored in helping children achieve these goals in a safe and caring environment, and I am thrilled at the opportunity to contribute my energy, ideas and support.

 

Tom Lanoue, Treasurer

I joined Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board with the aim of ensuring that children and young adults within my community receive the required support, programming and opportunities that I was had been awarded as a youth in order for them to excel as adults.

 

Dr. Sharon Pyke, Secretary

I have dedicated my career to the education and well-being of all children and youth. Being part of the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board fits with my belief that children and youth need to be valued, protected and given multiple opportunities to shine. 

 

Genevieve Isshak, Ex-Officio Society Member

I joined the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board to make a difference in the lives of children and families who are in need.  I believe deeply in the mission of WECAF to give every child an opportunity to achieve anything he or she can dream of.

 

Katherine Minardi, Honourary Muzzatti Family Member

It may seem unusual for someone my age, and with limited life experience, to become involved with the Windsor Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board.  My goal in accepting position is to encourage my generation to become involved in our community, as we can make a difference. We are the future of this community! As an Educational Assistant, my interest has always been in children, especially those with challenges. While working with and for the Foundation Board, I hope to be able to help promote the much needed and relied on community support the CAS so wholly depends on.

 

Thomas (Skip) McMahon

I joined the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board at the request of a former board member and president. However, the actual driver for my decision to get involved is because I have family members who are foster parents. I have seen great work they do with these kids, making them feel safe and loved. These kids become part of the extended family so I was more than pleased to be able to help out in some small capacity.

Rob Tamblyn

I love my children. I couldn’t just stand by and do nothing for all the children who are not being given the opportunities that are available. I believe the Foundation and Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid can reach kids and provide them with the support and finances they need.

 

Mike Horrobin

I joined the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation Board because I firmly believe that the programs and support offered make a significant difference in the lives of the children and youth served by the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society. Growing up I received tremendous support from my parents - being involved with the Foundation is one small way to give back to those less fortunate.

 

Christine Ziter

I feel that all kids deserve a chance. As a teenager I volunteered at the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society daycare and wished that the kids I saw could all be brought up in a home like mine. Today I’m a pharmacist, and I want to help make a difference in the lives of the children of WECAS.

 

Paul Schlosser

I joined the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation Board because so many children start their lives in difficult situations. There are many areas in our community that need help, however, having the proper resources and childhood experience are the best way to inspire and encourage children to develop a better future for themselves and for the community.

 

Cameron Paine

I feel that if you live and work in a community, and have the ability to make positive change, then you have an obligation to do so. I have joined the Children’s Aid Foundation to better understand our community and help raise funds to assist those in need.



Matt St Louis

All children deserve loving support and opportunities to help them develop into healthy, contributing members of their communities.  The Windsor Essex Children’s Aid Society and its Foundation make a difference in the lives of the children it serves.

 

Barton Seguin

Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation has provided me with a far better understanding of how many local children go without even the most basic of life’s necessities.  The role of the Foundation cannot be understated, and I am proud to offer assistance in supporting the programs and services that would not be possible if it were not for the funding that comes from its many faithful and dedicated donors.

 

Brandon Fitzgerald

I have seen firsthand the wonderful work Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid does. I believe every child deserves a chance.


 

Ben Parent

Children succeed when they are given the opportunity, instruction, and confidence to try. The Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation programs and people work every day to provide these ingredients to the children in our community. I joined this Foundation because every child deserves to try and to succeed. I want to to contribute to this story!



Danielle Tartaro

I believe every child deserves an opportunity to learn, grow and experience life's bounty regardless of their circumstance. WECAF is a wonderful organization that supports the youth in our community that are in need and I am honored to be a part of it.
