For 158 years, The Children’s Aid Society has worked tirelessly to be a part of the solution for over 70,000 children and families facing the instability, stress, and risk of living in poverty. Children’s Aid offers services to children from birth to young adulthood and their families. The CAS Hope Leadership Academy had its genesis post-9/11 providing adolescents with a safe place to process their feelings on violence and victimization, and showing them how to derive strength from their experiences so that they can feel empowered rather than hopeless. Serving teens age 14-24, Hope trains youth to be community educators, advocates and leaders, and gives them the skills and self-confidence they need to make changes in their own lives, their neighborhoods, and beyond.
The members of the Associates Council of the Children’s Aid Society are motivated, young professionals who are championing The Children’s Aid mission. Serving as advocates, we raise awareness and funding by volunteering and organizing activities and events, supporting the effort “to help children in poverty to succeed and thrive.”
