Sincèrement, Jill Moore PRÉSIDENTE DU CONSEIL D ADMINISTRATION Colette Prévost DIRECTRICE GÉNÉRALE Sylvia Pivko EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR BLUE HILLS CHILD AND FAMILY CENTRE What makes our partnership with York CAS successful is the ongoing vision to integrate key services, combined with our common values, shared perspective, and mutual respect. Many children and families coming through child welfare have mental health concerns, so it is a natural partnership for Blue Hills and York CAS to work together. Blue Hills has a 45-year history working to ensure the best treatment and service options for children s mental health. About a year and half ago, a children s mental health professional began sitting at York CAS to provide consultation to workers about children they are supporting. Over the past year, the children s mental health professional consulted on and assisted with 69 cases at York CAS. This is one of nine shared services. Another initiative we have recently collaborated on is the Road 2 Resolution program, an alternative dispute resolution method that involves a meeting with twothird party facilitators, York CAS, and the family. This meeting takes place when a child has been removed from the home with the goal of engaging the family in early decision making and to assist in ensuring positive interactions and practices between York CAS and the family. 2014/2015 Annual Report 3

4 Gordon & Bev FOSTER PARENTS WITH YORK REGION CHILDREN S AID SOCIETY Shannon Crate CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES CHIPPEWAS OF GEORGINA ISLAND York CAS calls me first about any concerns regarding the children of Georgina Island s First Nation. Together, we work with the family to ensure First Nation s customs are respected and so the community can help decide where children and youth live when they can t stay at home. This process was established about 10 years ago and has inspired similar protocol between other CASs and First Nation communities in the province. York CAS strives to understand the way in which First Nations people live and raise their families. Over the past year, York CAS staff came to Georgina Island to complete Aboriginal Alternative Dispute Resolution training and to understand the legislation in the Child and Family Services Act that directs CASs to deliver provisions of service to First Nations families. When I think about the relationship we have with York CAS, this teaching comes to mind: we each paddle down the river, side by side, in our own way of paddling. We might paddle differently, but we are going in the same direction. From attending school activities and sports practices, to youth camps and scouting fostering makes us smile and keeps us young. We have been foster parents with York CAS for 11 years. We began fostering because we wanted to give back to our community. After much training with York CAS, we began doing relief visits for other foster parents. It kind of felt like being a first-time mom again, except having different boundaries because they are not our children. But we felt like this is what we should be doing; like it was our calling in life. We have supported 23 children who have lived in our home, with 11 returning to family or kin, and five being adopted. Currently, we have four boys living with us; two are siblings that have been with us since the beginning. These brothers have grown up with us, enjoying all our regular family activities and outings over the years and travelling across Canada for family vacations with us. We will continue to foster knowing we are making a difference in kid s lives. 4 To learn more, please visit or call our EVER THOUGHT ABOUT BEING A FOSTER PARENT?
