CAS Paid by the Child
May 13, 2011 permalink
You don't believe CAS gets paid to take kids? According to Jim Phillips, Director of Corporate Resources for Waterloo CAS, it's their only source of funds:
Funding to the Society is based on the volume of cases receiving services. The amount of funding per case does not change. When a family requires services from the Society, the Society receives an allocation of funds which must cover all aspects of service to that family including worker salary, supervisor salary, provision of programs such counselling or educational programs, office supplies' legal costs etc. This amount is not linked to the number of hours, types of services or other variables impacting the cost of the services to that family.
