Values

Since 1899 Children's Aid and Family Services has been recognized as aleader in adoption and specialtytherapeutic services for children who have been severely traumatized and abused. We, volunteers and staff, arededicated to working together to develop and enhance the agency's capacity to provide special needs adoption, early childhood education, foster care, counseling, and other social services to those who are disadvantaged, at-risk or in crisis.

Webelieve that vulnerable and wounded children, as well as all humanbeings, have the capacity to learn, to heal, and to grow. We believe that interdependent relationships that practice and teach mutualrespect, responsibility, honesty and permanency play an integral and powerful role in a person's growth and development at all stages of life. Furthermore, we believe that self-sufficiency is intrinsic to human dignity and to society's health and prosperity. These beliefs are the foundation upon which our mission rests and upon which we pledge theresources and talents of a caring and accountable organization.
