Help support our Children First Fund

This week, we learned about the loss of four lives, and the near loss of another, because of hatred.  Our hearts break for this innocent family, and for this young boy who has lost his mom, dad, sister and grandmother to a horrific act of violence.

As an organization committed to the safety and well-being of children and families, we are devastated by this news. We condemn this terrible act of violence and Islamophobia, and we stand in solidarity with our Muslim community here in Guelph and Wellington County, and Muslim communities across Ontario.

We have to do better, we must do better – as individuals and communities.

We need to work together to keep our friends, family, and neighbours safe. If you witness an act of discrimination or hate, please contact your local police immediately. Or, in an emergency situation, call 911.

Please seek out support if you need it.
