About Us

The Children’s Foundation, serving Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties is an autonomous organization governed by its own Board of Directors. We are the charitable arm of Highland Shores Children’s Aid. As well, we have programs for families who are living in poverty who have no affiliation with HCAS. Our programs & services aim to educate and inspire our community to effect change and to bring people and financial resources together to improve the quality of life for children and youth who are at risk. We support programs in the community at large as well as within the HSCA all toward the common goal of improving the quality of life for children and youth in our communities.


MISSION

To educate and inspire our community to effect change and to bring people and financial resources together to improve the quality of life for children and youth who are at risk in our communities.


VISION

In our community:


VALUES

Child & Family Focused

We will always focus on children, youth and the needs of their family. We vow to understand the needs of children in our community and to remember that family means different things to different people.

Integrity & Accountability

The staff and board will be accountable to our stakeholders for the effective and efficient management of the Foundation. It is vital that the community is confident in the transparency and integrity of the decisions made and the people who make them.

Compassionate & Inspirational

Respect, confidentiality, compassion, and a non-judgmental attitude guide all of our actions. The Children’s Foundation will always promote hope and the belief that change can and does happen. Inspiring children and youth to reach their fullest potential will be paramount in our programs and activities.

Committed

We are committed to the children in our communities and will work to improve the lives of abused, neglected and at risk children and youth through prevention, enrichment and educational programming.

Good Leaders & Good partners

We recognize that our communities are best served by organizations willing to work together toward the achievement of common goals. We will participate in whatever role the collaboration is best served by.
