Our Philosophy:

Kids CAN Charity is a not for profit, charitable organization providing social and emotional learning opportunities for children and youth. The centre was developed to serve the growing need for programs that emphasize social and emotional development within a relationship based model.

Our Mission:

The objective of Kids CAN Charity is to provide support and encouragement for children and youth with autism and other developmental disorders. Programs offered by the charity include after-school social groups, individual support programs, teen counselling, family support groups, and parent coaching.

Through fundraising and grants, our goal is to raise enough money to make these necessary programs accessible to more families by greatly reducing or eliminating fees. Kids CAN Charity hopes to spread feelings of relief, happiness and hope to all families and children living with autism and other developmental disorders.

Kids CAN Charity is a non-for profit organization. Kids CAN Charity receives no direct government funding and relies on fundraisers and donations from our community.

How Funds Are Used:

All of the money raised through Kids CAN Charity is used to fund the expenses involved with operating cost for group programs and well as family support in the form of coaching and training. Every dollar raised is used towards the cost of teaching materials, student field trips, and sensory equipment, A portion of funds raised also goes directly toward families in need of financial assistance. The more funds that are raised to defray program expenses, the less reliant we are on the registration fees paid by parents.
