“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”
Give Kids a Fighting Chance
Children’s services in Ontario are mandated and funded by the government through agencies such as ours. However operational funding does not cover everything. In order to bridge the gap, as a registered charity, we raise funds for programs aimed at improving the lives of children and youth in our care and for families we work with in the community.
These programs enhance children’s lives with activities such as summer camp, tutoring, arts instruction, and music lessons. For children involved with SMFC, these are the activities that engage them and help them through the everyday struggles and stresses, that are often far greater than average.
Education is the cornerstone for a child or youth’s success.
Some families that we work with struggle with basic necessities to support the well-being of their children and need help with clothing, furnishings such as cribs and
Activities we fund directly help more than 3,000 children and youth working with us annually through a variety of programs, our 3 main ones: Summer Camps, Back to School & Holiday.
The well-being of children and families is important to everyone in our community. With your financial support we can continue to provide programs that enrich and education children and youth and help strengthen families who are dealing with unique stresses.
