Highland Shores Children's Aid offers programs and services that help to empower the youth in our care. Children and youth are brought into care for a variety of reasons such as; they have been harmed or are at risk of being harmed, have been exposed to abuse or domestic violence, their natural parents or guardians may not be able to take care of them, or they may need permanent placement apart from their biological family.
Each child or youth in care is assigned a Children's Services Worker who meets with the child or youth privately on a regular basis. The Children's Services Worker is part of a team who work together to help meet the child or youth's specific needs and to provide support to them.
Children can remain in the care of the Society until the age of 18 and afer that, there is additional support available to youth until the age of 21 in the form of an Extended Care and Maintenance Agreement.
