Over two decades of bridging opportunity gaps!
Over the last year the Foundation has served the most children and youth to date, with over 1109 opportunity gaps being filled. We have been able to provide an amazing service to our community and this is due in no small part to the wonderful support we have had from both our national partner, the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, and our local partners including the Halifax Youth Foundation, The Nova Scotia Dental Association, The United Way Halifax, our faithful donors and all of our event sponsors and partners in the community. Not to mention all of the volunteers and professionals that have worked tirelessly to help raise money and make good things happen!
We look forward to continuing our good work on behalf of disadvantaged children and youth – whether it be sponsoring further education through our Education Achievement Fund, helping kids go to summer camp, bridging gaps through our Good Beginnings Fund, providing oral health care for youth, or helping to purchase household items for youth transitioning out on their own. Our national funds allow us to help out with such things as tutoring, recreational and cultural activities and provide comfort kits for children coming into care.
In 2018-19 we look forward to continuing and expanding our wonderful partnerships within the community knowing that we can only achieve what we do with your kindhearted support. I would therefore like to thank each and every one of you for your continued generosity in enriching the lives of disadvantaged children and youth in our community.
