Help support our Children First Fund

Thank you for helping us to meet needs, create opportunities, and transform lives

Do you want to know how your gift makes a difference?

Your support of our Children First Fund allows us to go beyond our mandated services to provide critical resources and opportunities to the children, youth and families that we work with, within four impact areas.

Your gifts ensure that the vulnerable children, youth and families we serve have support toward their basic needs when they are struggling, and can also access new opportunities that help them to overcome their biggest challenges.

With your support, we can give the children, youth and families we serve every opportunity to succeed!

Children First Fund Areas of Impact

Building Opportunities for Youth Success

Youth leaving care need our support! Your gifts ensure that youth have what they need to be empowered to realize their dreams!

Supporting Strong and Resilient Families

With your support, we can ensure that isolated and struggling families have the supports and opportunities they need to be strong and resilient.


Meeting Urgent Needs


Your gifts ensure that our children, youth and families can meet their basic needs when they can’t access the support they need elsewhere.


Enriching Lives


Your gifts provide enrichment opportunities that deeply impact the lives of vulnerable children, youth and families.

Your gifts make an incredible difference….

The children, youth and families that we work with are some of the strongest and most resilient individuals we know, and we want to provide them with every opportunity we can to succeed.

Your gifts make it possible for us to go above and beyond our mandate, so we can provide our children, youth and families with access to resources and supports they otherwise would not have, and empower them to thrive!

What kind of things do my gifts support?

The Children First Fund fills critical funding gaps for the children, youth and families that we serve, ensuring that they can access the support they need when they have nowhere else to turn.

Supports provided by our Children First Fund are highly individualized, and designed to empower our children, youth and families to overcome the biggest challenges in their lives.
