All referrals for our CAS/VAW program come directly from the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk (CASHN).

The goal of this program is to increase access to services for women, and their children, who are involved with CASHN. If you’re experiencing/have experienced abuse and you’re interested in accessing any of the programs found within this website, please speak to your CASHN worker regarding your interest and request that they submit a referral on your behalf. Once the referral is received, the CAS/VAW advocate will contact you within 7 days to discuss your interest and book an intake. You can attend the intake on your own or request that your CAS worker attend for additional support if that’s your preference. During the intake process the CAS/VAW advocate will complete safety planning as needed and review all HNWS programs, together you will choose which services, if any, you’d like to take part in. Referrals will also be provided to other community agencies as appropriate.
