Our Purpose

To improve the quality of life for seriously and chronically ill children and their families, when love is not enough.

We work closely with children’s hospitals across Ontario to cover costs for children that are not covered by hospital funds, OHIP, or private insurance.

We react quickly to requests and in emergency situations, often within 24 hours.
We act as a “safety net” for Ontario children when all other resources have been exhausted.
We take an individual approach to financially assisting the children that are referred to us.
We do all our own fundraising. We receive no Government or United Way funding.

CARE Assistance with the cost of specialized care which includes one-on-one respite care.

Therapies which maximize the developmental potential of the child, and specialized medications and supplies not covered by government funding or private insurance.
