By Adnews Staff
The Catholic Children's Aid Society Of Toronto has redesigned its website at <http://www.torontoccas.ca>. According to the organization, the new site is intended to provide improved access to children, young people and families in need of its services. The site features statements on on the subjects of racism, oppression, LGBT issues, and truth and reconciliation issues. It also includes a video about the Africentric Wraparound model, an approach to service delivery that seeks to “unpack and dismantle bias in decision-making” about families. The site also includes a new section aimed at young people, focusing on financial planning, literacy, education, sources of support and transitioning out of the child welfare system.
“By starting with the question, ‘How can we help?” we developed a site that enhances the user experience and supports the important work we do every day, like connecting service recipients to resources and linking them with community partners in the Greater Toronto Area,” said Priscilla Manful, CEO ofthe society. “The website reflects our commitment to equity and our Catholic identity, which is fundamental to who we are as a child protection agency serving the Toronto Catholic community.”
