What We Do
CCWS work with child welfare survivors between the ages 15-25, particularly Black, Indigenous and racialized children and youth. CCWS also works with families, primarily Black, Indigenous and racialized, dealing with child protection, including reunification and adoption support. We also support adult child welfare survivors. However, our services prioritize Black, Indigenous, and racialized child welfare survivors that are 15-25 years-old.
We offer services and support in:
CCWS provides individual advocacy support for children and youth, primarily Black, Indigenous, and racialized, as well as their families who are involved with or have been involved with child protection services or child welfare in Ontario.
We consider systemic organizing to be any kind of public advocacy, campaign, or organizing effort to address a systemic issue collectively impacting child welfare survivors.
We focus on creating educational and healing spaces that deal with a range of topics for child welfare survivors, primarily Black, Indigenous, and racialized youth between the ages of 12-25.
