Family and Children’s Services (FACS) Niagara Foundation

Social Service


The FACS Niagara Foundation raises funds and awareness to support and help children, youth and families in the Niagara Region to reach their full potential. Although Family & Children’s Services (FACS) Niagara receives funding to provide protection and support services, the Foundation raises funds so that local kids in need can enjoy a summer camp experience and youth in care have opportunities for college, university and job skills training. Thanks to generous donors and volunteers, the Foundation also provides emergency COVID-19 supports so youth and families can help meet their basic needs and stay strong. The FACS Niagara Foundation also supports capital improvements at FACS Niagara facilities and works with the community to support children and families during Holidays and the Festive Season.
