FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES FUND
The holiday season can be hard for those who have spent time in care. We provide support for youth during this time by offering travel and accommodation assistance to young people.
Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada provides support for youth during this time by offering travel and accommodation assistance to young people from care aged 16-29 who would like to connect with their friends or loved ones or do not have a place to stay during the holiday season. This support is offered every year between October to December. In 2017, 71 young people were supported for their travel and accommodation needs during the holiday season.
