Raising children takes a lot of time, energy and patience. It is even harder when you are coping with serious problems like unemployment, poverty, ill health or caring for a child who has serious physical, emotional or developmental difficulties.

CAS is here for you. The best way to deal with child abuse and neglect is to prevent it. We encourage you to contact us before family problems get out of control. CAS can help you with information and referral to another community service.
