The Children’s Foundation would like to thank the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation’s “Kay Stafford Fund” for providing TCF $7,500 to go towards our Playing for Keeps, Camps of Hope and Strive to Thrive programs.
Executive Director, Kim Henry was so happy to be able to virtually attend the cheque presentation and to be able to show the gratitude to this Foundation for helping make TCF programs possible as kids need our help now more than ever.
Thank you so much for your generosity! Together we are helping one child at a time!
Thank you to the City of Belleville Grants Committee for providing $12,000 towards The Children’s Foundation programs to help at-risk children and youth in Belleville.
These funds are going towards programs like Camps of Hope. This programs provides funds for children and youth to attend camp, year round.
Due to restrictions of COVID-19, many camps have gotten creative by either providing services online or adjusting in other ways to make a camp like experience still possible for children.
The Children’s Foundation created “Summer Fun Kits” for children in 2020, and is on track to create more for summer 2021 for children to still be able to experience camp, safely at home.
Thank you to the City of Belleville! Together we are Helping One Child at a Time!
TCF is so happy to announce that we received $5,000 from the F.K. Morrow Foundation to support our Playing for Keeps, Camps of Hope and Reach for Success programs!!
This foundation provides funding to registered charities whose programs are within the field of social services, education, research, culture, arts, religion, health, the environment and community benefits.
We are so fortunate to be able to receive funds from organizations like this to help get us through these challenging times while still providing support for our local children and youth.
Together we are helping one child at a time because kids can’t wait!
Young moms need your help now more than ever!
Moms like Katie, she was 18, pregnant and alone. She didn’t have her Mom, or even a mother figure to reach out to. Thanks to caring donors like you, Katie was given “Helping Hands” to hold onto.
The Children’s Foundation provides support for young moms like this, through our Helping Hands program. This is just one of the many programs that TCF provides to help our local youth.
Together we are Helping One Child at a Time because Kids Can’t Wait!
Thank you to the entire team at Crown Ridge Health Care Services for their donation of $500 towards programs and services for youth in Hastings County!

It makes us so proud to be a part of this wonderful community.
Thank you to Crown Ridge Health Care Services and together we are #helpingonechildatatime
The Children’s Foundation annual Guardian Angel Gala celebrating our 2021 Guardian Angel, Bernie Ouellet, has been postponed to March 5, 2022.
We made this decision in order to honour Bernie in the typical TCF Gala style that he deserves! This decision came to light due to the unknowns associated with the current COVID-19 restrictions. Keeping our community safe is top priority.
Due to the postponement of the event, Bernie is our first Angel to be honoured two (2) years straight! We look forward to 2022 when we can properly celebrate such an important member of our community.
To become a sponsor, donate to the Live or Silent Auction, or to be put on the ticket waitlist, contact Alyssa Parks, Special Events Coordinator at Alyssa.Parks@highlandshorescas.com
The Children’s Foundation is excited to announce the launch of the pilot program ‘Strive to Thrive’ on Thursday, January 28th. This is a program aimed at Mental Health for Children and Youth in Hastings, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties.
With the growing numbers of children and youth experiencing challenges to their mental health, and the added effects of Covid-19 pandemic safety measures such as restrictions and isolation for safety, The Children’s Foundation wants to focus on delivering programs to children and youth that will strengthen and support their physical, mental and emotional health, to offer mental health support where greater needs are identified.
The Children’s Foundation, working with Highland Shores Children’s Aid, identifies at-risk children and youth’s mental health as a priority. The Highland Shores Children’s Aid has a team of trained social workers who are able to identify those at greatest risk in terms of their mental health, and offer support and resources to them, or refer them to other professionals, often before they are in crisis.
The ‘Strive To Thrive’ program will offer activities aimed at creating positive self esteem for children and youth, as well as providing life-skills training and care kits for older youth living on their own for the first time.“Up to seventy percent of mental health problems and illnesses begin in childhood or adolescence, and as many as three in four children and youth with mental health problems and illnesses do not access services and treatments. We want to be there to help at risk children and youth now, to prevent future mental health problems”, says Executive Director Kim Henry.
