Knowing that the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society touches the lives of one out of every eight children in our community makes such a compelling case for the importance of the work of both the Society and the Foundation. I believe providing children with opportunities to learn, grow and smile is crucial to their development and the WECAF is at the heart of making this happen.

I joined the board because of the great work WECAS does in our region.
