Five organizations in Pictou County are receiving funding from the Aberdeen Health Foundation’s Children’s Aid Society (CAS) Endowment.
The endowment was established to support projects that alleviate risk, prevent crisis, and enhance the potential for healthy outcomes for children, youth, and families in Pictou County.
The projects will together receive more than $95,000, and range from community gardens and safe, play-based learning equipment to respite services, and education about healthy living.

“The wide range of projects illustrates just how far reaching this fund can be and how it is touching many organizations that are working to improve healthy outcomes for children, youth, and families in Pictou County,” says Robyn Eaton, speaking on behalf of the Foundation.
The Aberdeen Health Foundation’s Children’s Aid Society (CAS) Endowment Fund was established through a $1 million gift from the former Children’s Aid Society of Pictou County. Applications for the CAS Endowment are accepted annually, the next deadline is March 31, 2016.
