Children may be 21% of our Island’s population, but they’re 100% of our future.
How we help.
Find care for your child
When you need help accessing services for your child, our community partners can help.
Access family-centred facilities
Our child, youth, and family centres offer easy access to the services and support you need.
Support for education
With our scholarships and bursaries, educational opportunities are more accessible.
Thanks to generous donors like you, we can ensure Island families get the health care they need, over the holidays and all year long. Read about an Island family you’ve helped and learn how you can help more families just like them by donating and by attending fun, festive events.

In an effort to rally the community behind our fundraising efforts, Dale Collins of Prosperity Planning has generously offered to donate a $10,000 matching gift. For every new individual who signs up as a monthly donor before the end of 2018, Dale will honour that with a $100 gift per new monthly donor (up to a total of $10,000).
Words from Island Families
Thanks to funding from the Foundation, we had a crash course in parenting a preemie, keeping us on our game without making us feel like we didn’t know what we were doing—and our son is thriving as a result.
The Solarium was my home. It was such a good childhood in many, many ways. I’ve always felt capable to do anything I wanted, and I’m here today, 80 years old, still able to do my thing.
Once you’ve had a sick kid there’s never any going back to normal. It gets better and better the further we get from that time, but Jeneece Place is still our home away from home whenever we’re in Victoria for Gabe’s check-ups.
