Our Core Values

All children should receive equitable opportunity to develop to their full potential. Guided by the principle that it takes a village to raise a child, CCWE’s commitment is to:

  • Secure fair access to delivery of services and supports for vulnerable youth and families
  • Give voice to the youth and families in vulnerable populations
  • Network and collaborate with individuals, families, communities and organization to improve the wellbeing and outcomes of families who are vulnerable
  • Advocate with and on behalf of youth, families, and communities
  • Provide data and information that reveal the realities of the system and builds capacity that improves the lives of the youth and families.

We are committed to ensuring personal growth and strong foundations for a diverse community and a better society.
