No Child, Youth or Family Shall Be Left Behind
The Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF) receives support through corporate supporters, Foundations, individual donors, various community organizations and special events. Funds raised directly benefit children and youth involved with the Durham Children’s Aid Society and those living in the Durham Region.
DCAF is supporting essential and necessary services that are not covered by government funding. The funds are dedicated to key areas, always working to ensure a maximized impact for the community. These programs may seem small, but they can have a huge impact on the life of a child or youth. It is because of the support of the community that DCAF is able to extend a helping hand to those children in desperate need. DCAF helps to break the cycle of abuse and neglect, while fostering the healthy development of youth into socially responsible adults.
Together we are working to ensure that No Child, Youth or Family Shall Be Left Behind in the Durham region.
DCAF supports the following programs:
Gifts of Support & Love

Dear Durham CAS Foundation,
My name is C F-R, I would like to say that I greatly appreciate your generosity for donating me a phone and laptop. The phone has helped me connect with my family, friends and support and the laptop will help me with school work that I may need to do and it will allow me to bring the laptop home to do homework instead of having to wait until the next day to use the school computer. I am really excited to use the laptop and enjoy using the phone to communicate with my mom and best friends.
