In a perfect world, every child would be nurtured by a loving family, attend a challenging and exciting school and live in a supportive community. But the sad reality is that not every child has these opportunities. The Children’s Aid Society helps children in poverty to succeed and thrive.  We have been serving children for more than 150 years, a longevity that testifies to our ability to adapt to the changing needs of today's youth.
