Highland Shores Children’s Aid believes that every child has the right to live and develop in a safe nurturing environment, free from maltreatment.   We strive to maintain children in their family home, but there are times when this is not possible.  When children are deemed to be unsafe and removed from the family home, the preferred option is to place the child with a member of the immediate or extended family or with a person who has a significant relationship with the child.  When this is not possible children are placed in a family environment within a foster home.
