Everybody deserves ACCESS TO HEALTH RESOURCES

Providing access to services that are important to helping to maintain the health of those living below the poverty line like dental and eye care and recreation programming for children.

Acting as a Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities ambassador, we support families who are applying for the individual child grant for organized sports and recreation activities. We also facilitate applications and referrals to the CIty of Niagara Falls Activity Subsidy fund, the Matthew Danielle memorial fund, PROKids, and KidSport NIagara.

The Canadian Tire Jumpstart program assists children ranging from age 4 to 18 with the cost of playing organized sports and recreational activities up to $600 per child per year.
