About Us

Established in 2004, the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to championing the well-being of children, youth, and families affiliated with the Durham Children’s Aid Society, as well as those facing challenges in Durham Region.

Committed to making a meaningful impact, the Foundation extends a compassionate hand to those navigating vulnerable circumstances. By securing funding for essential programs, activities, and services not covered by government support, the Foundation focuses on providing assistance to children and youth in economically disadvantaged and vulnerable family situations. Our overarching goal is to ensure that every child or youth, irrespective of their circumstances, possesses the necessary resources and support to realize and achieve their full potential.

The Foundation actively supports a diverse range of programs tailored to enhance the lives of children, youth, and families in need. Learn more here.
