A Strong Support

The Family & Children’s Services Foundation believes that children are our community's most valuable resource. Every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Our role is to help provide that opportunity.

About Us

Since 1991, the Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region Foundation has supported children, youth, and families in our community. Government funding is not enough to meet the needs of the families we serve.

Research shows that it takes a caring community to help children and families. Thanks to the support of kind and generous individuals, families, businesses, and foundations, we are able to support the programs and services that prevent child abuse and neglect, and allow children and their families to stay together and thrive.

A caring community…

…wraps around individuals in need and fosters inclusion and belonging.
…prevents people from living in isolation which in turn can lead to abuse, neglect and trauma.
…ensures all families are provided equitable support to care for their children safely
…has immense impact on the wellbeing of children because it takes a village. It really does.
