Meet Bianca

Bianca remembers being involved with various CASs very early in life as her mother moved around a lot. First she was under a protection order, then she was a society ward. She stayed with a friend of the family, then there was foster care with several pairs of foster parents. Today she’s at university. “I’d like to think that I would have gone to university no matter what happened, but I did have a lot of support from my foster family.”

Bianca thinks it’s important to raise awareness among young people about the work the children’s aid society does and about the need to keep it strong because they will be adults soon and need to support it.

“CAS needs to get the word out. Start the effort on Facebook and put speakers into high schools. Use online advertising and debate questions—get the word out.”
