Children’s Aid Club provides and supports many initiatives throughout the year. The single largest initiative is funded through the Immediate Response Fund for Individuals. The primary objective of this Fund is to help families with children in the home who find themselves in short-term crisis situations. We provide immediate assistance in urgent situations and follow up with additional assistance as needed to help the families get back on track and become self sufficient.
Families are screened to qualify their needs, verify expenses and income. By working directly with creditors (utility companies, landlords, etc,) to pay them directly, CAC is assured that funds are being spent in accordance with funding guidelines. We often give food certificates, but we do not give cash.
