Established in 2004, the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF) is a registered charity supporting children, youth and families associated with the Durham Children’s Aid Society and those living in the Durham Region.

The Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF) extends a helping hand to children, youth and families living in vulnerable situations. Programs and activities supported by DCAF provide funding for essential programs and services. These services are not covered by government funding. DCAF focuses on assistance for children and youth living in economically disadvantaged and vulnerable family situations. Our goal is that every child or youth, regardless of their circumstances, have the resources and ability to reach their full potential.

DCAF supports various programs for children, youth and families.
