Welcome to Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region

As one of 47 Children’s Aid Societies in Ontario, Family & Children's Services of the Waterloo Region responds and works together with families, their supports and our communities to prevent harm to children and to protect and care for children who have been abused or neglected.

We are committed to building relationships with families and communities for the well-being and safety of children and youth. Our focus on in-home, early intervention services – including counselling, parenting programs, substance abuse treatment and more – means 97% of the families we work get the help they need to care safely for their children at home. Recognizing that early intervention can reduce the need for more intrusive services later helps children flourish in caring family settings.
