Hastings CAS will Survive
December 18, 2010 permalink
The problem-prone Hastings CAS will not be absorbed in next year's amalgamation drive, but may take over one of its neighbors instead.
Children’s Aid Society Consolidating
The Ontario government’s plan for cost-cutting includes consolidating a dozen Childrens Aid Societies…effective in 2012. The Hastings CAS is not on the list , but has been asked to co-operate in “taking in” other agencies, probably those in Northumberland and Prince Edward County. Local CAS executive director Len Kennedy says a completely new organization would be created with a central administration but not likely changing the branch locations. Kennedy says it’s too early to determine if any positions would be lost, but the quality of service to children would not be affected.
