Jeff Walters Jewellers Supports Children's Aid - Snap Article
Child welfare is not so much an isolated occurrence as it is a community concern. The Simcoe County Children's Aid Society has been serving the community since 1894, providing a range of services to the individuals and community. For most of us, investigating allegations of child abuse and neglect and placing children in alternative care arrangements as legally required, are two common threads of understanding, when it comes to the services associated with Children's Aid.
In October of 2012, Jeff Walters and Tawnya Sobun met with Foundation Director Kimberly Carson for a behind the scenes tour of the many hats the Children's Aid foundation of Simcoe County wears, in order to help abused and neglected children lead happier and safer lives. "Look where we are in this picture" Jeff says, "It looks like a normal kitchen we all wake up to, but for many youth living on their own, learning the basic needs on how to cook and prepare food for themselves and child, is not a skill-set they have learned out on the streets. Here they are given one on one counseling on how to feel comfortable and responsible as a home maker." You can learn more about the Society on line at www.simcoecas.com.
