Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is our country’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth involved in the child welfare system. We raise and grant funds and deliver a wide range of high-impact programs and services in partnership with 72 child- and youth-serving agencies across the country that support more than 19,300 vulnerable young people and 4,200 families annually.
Stand Up for Kids is our national public movement uniting caring Canadians in changing the futures of our nation’s most vulnerable kids – those who have experienced abuse and neglect. We know that by helping these young people to overcome their trauma and break the cycle for future generations, they gain the strength and resilience to create a lifetime of their own unstoppable successes.
Since the launch of our Stand Up for Kids movement, we have supported a total of 113,546 vulnerable children and youth by strengthening at-risk families, supporting kids in care, and empowering youth as they transition from the child welfare system to independent living.
- 1,837 families were strengthened to keep kids at home
- 9,658 kids received supports to help them thrive
- 6,024 youth were supported to reduce barriers to successful futures
There is tremendous momentum behind the Stand Up for Kids movement. With your help, we can do so much more to improve outcomes for the young people and families we serve across the country.
