Did you know that the rates of unemployment and poverty for children and youth in Ontario are among the highest in Canada?

  • 1 in 5 children live in poverty.
  • 1 in 6 children experiences food insecurity.
  • Unemployment rates for young people in Canada increased twice as much as older Canadians during the pandemic.

Children and youth should not experience poverty. When a family is struggling financially, it not only impacts the parents but also the young ones. It generates stress, which delay in their development, school readiness, and mental and physical health. We can only imagine what might happen to that little one once they grow up.

Your gift makes a difference in the lives of children, youth and those young at heart.

In these videos, you will hear the stories from young and young at heart, community partners and donors who can witness the tremendous impact of our programs.
