COVID-19 RESPONSE PROGRAM

A program created to help those involved with the child welfare system to address needs they are experiencing as a result of the pandemic.

We created the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada COVID-19 Response Program to help vulnerable children and families being served by child welfare organizations and youth who have transitioned out of the child welfare system to address financial and other needs they are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
