Brantford / Townsend – We are very pleased to announce the launch of Child and Family Services of Grand Erie Foundation (CFS GE Foundation). With the amalgamation of Brant Family and Children’s Services and the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk, the Brant FACS Foundation readily decided to also make changes to reflect the expanded area served by the charity it supports by changing its name and including Haldimand and Norfolk in its mandate.

The CFS GE Foundation’s mission is ‘to help children and youth reach their full potential through post-secondary education support, summer camp opportunities and special projects that promote healthy minds and bodies, life skills, learning and development’. It now supports Child and Family Services of Grand Erie in serving the communities of:

Brantford | Brant | Haldimand | Norfolk | Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation

The composition of the Board of Directors of CFS GE Foundation has also been adjusted to reflect the area served and includes:

Kevin Hodge (Board Chair)
Kim Ann Laush (Board Vice-Chair)
Rhonda Morley (Secretary-Treasurer)
Jo-Anne Flood (Board Member)
Susan Holyome (Board Member)
Andrea King (Board Member)
Craig Mannell (Board Member)
Vernon Payne (Board Member)

Please check out our new website at where you can find Board member profiles and information about how you can help the Foundation change the lives of children in our communities.
