Raising funds and community awareness to support FACS Niagara in its mission to protect, support and strengthen the lives of children, youth and families.

Donate Now

After more than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the kids and families that FACS Niagara supports need something to smile about this summer!

With health precautions easing, we need your help to send at least 340 children and youth to week-long, YMCA day camps in the Niagara Peninsula. And, we hope to help provide 200 “Summer Smiles at Home” activity kits and access for 140 kids to attend virtual camps.

Your donation now will give vulnerable children and youth a summer camp experience they desperately need and will cherish forever!

Children, Youth and Families
Need Your Emergency Support

With the COVID-19 crisis now in a third wave, it is increasingly difficult for the vulnerable children, youth and families served by FACS Niagara to meet even their most basic needs. Families needing to turn to food banks or other community resources are finding those supports overwhelmed.

That’s why we need your help for vulnerable families and youth – to ensure they have what they need to make it through this economic crisis.

Family & Children’s Services Niagara works with some of our community’s most vulnerable children, youth, and their families.

While FACS Niagara works to protect children and youth and strengthen families, the Niagara Foundation for Family & Children’s Services raises funds and awareness to support and help children, youth and families in the Niagara Region to reach their full potential. Although FACS Niagara receives funding to provide protection and support services, the FACS 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 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.

Thanks to the community’s generous support, in 2020:
