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.

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.

It is an honour to be involved on the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation’s Board of Directors. Children are our greatest asset in building a safe and successful future, and helping at such a crucial time in their development is the foundation for change. As a recent resident of Windsor-Essex, seeing the top-notch programs & resources offered at the WECAS opened my eyes to what is possible in our community with hard work, generosity, and a LOT of heart.

The need for programming and support for our local families, children and youth is vast and continuous. I feel very strongly that every child deserves a chance to live their best life with health, wellness and safety.

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.
