As a lifelong resident of Windsor/Essex County, I believe it is my responsibility and duty to give back to my community; a community that has given so much to me and my family.

Mike Fisher

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 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.

Jason Seitsinger

I am thrilled to join this Board because of the inspiring services that the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society provides for our community. My mother-in-law has been a foster parent for years, and I have seen first-hand how professional and generous this organization is through facilitating safe and nurturing care for children. The other programs and supports the society provides are instrumental in connecting the community.  I am excited about new initiatives, such as the Bridge of Hope program that helps teens transition into adulthood. I am honoured to serve in a small way to help continue these helpful programs.
