Welcome to Highland shores children's aid
The Society protects and cares for vulnerable children and youth in the counties of Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward and provides programs and services that help to empower them and their families.
The Highland Shores Children's Aid (HSCA) Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is made up of two staff and several youth currently in the care of the Society. They work to represent and support youth by bringing forward ideas and suggestions to the HSCA Board of Directors and by holding monthly meetings which are attended by a Board member liaison. Youth currently in the care of Highland Shores Children's Aid, or formerly in our care, who would like to connect to a YAC member can do so via this email address: YAC@highlandshorescas.com.
