Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is our country’s leading charity dedicated to standing up for children and families involved in the child welfare system and standing alongside youth with lived experience. We raise and grant funds and deliver a wide range of high-impact programs and services in partnership with 80 child- and youth-serving agencies across the country. Last year, we supported over 19,568 children, youth and families.
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 over 110,000 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.
Last year we helped:
- 3,471 young people and 2,908 families across Canada access the services and supports they need to thrive
- 7,543 children and youth in care across Canada find hope for a brighter future
- 4,449 youth access the resources they need to establish meaningful, fulfilling lives after care
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.
