FROM THE PRESIDENT
It is a pleasure to welcome you to WECAF.ON.CA, the web-site of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation. As you journey through the site, you will meet our Board members, become acquainted with the many programs that nurture children, empower youth and strengthen families, share in the success of many of our young people and learn about upcoming activities and events.
Building on the success of the Bill & Dot Muzzatti Child & Family Centre, our Board of Directors has launched into a campaign entitled, “You Can Write A Child’s Story”. This initiative offers individuals, organizations and businesses the opportunity to contribute to programs that directly impact the 1 in every 8 children in Windsor-Essex that the Children’s Aid Society provides services to. Our goal is to raise $2 million over the next four years. We are confident that our community will respond. There is a wide array of ways that you can help. Our booklet featured on this web-site highlights many of the options that range from supporting one child to sponsoring an entire program.
The Children’s Aid Society offers mandated services such as child protection that are supplemented by government funding. The Foundation, a separate entity with its own charitable registration number has as our Mission Statement reflects, the provision to provide financial support to the safety and well-being of children and families of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society through fundraising initiatives and public education. We invite you to contribute to our many “Success Stories” made possible by the enriching programs that the Foundation supports through your generosity.
Thank you for your interest!
Cheryl Sprague, President
Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation
