As your local child welfare services and child & youth mental health provider, Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions (SMFC) provides needed services to vulnerable children, youth, and families in our community, many of whom struggle to meet their basic needs. Your support this holiday season will provide them with hope and knowledge that someone cares.
Through our sponsorship program, generous donors and partnerships with local businesses and organizations, we are able to help close to 3,000 children, youth and families across Simcoe and Muskoka.
What is the the Holiday Program?
The program is intended to assist agency clients who are currently struggling financially and unable to afford a holiday celebration. They include kin care providers, mental health clients, family service users and youth in independent living. It is an inclusive program for individuals of any race, creed, or religious affiliation. It is intended to support a winter celebration of their choosing.
How can I help?
Just as there is diversity in those we help, we know donors have a variety of reasons, ways, and means to support those in need. You can chose to sponsor and shop for children, youth, and/or families by building gift packages based on wish lists, buy items in bulk so that our team can build gift packages, or provide a financial donation to cover the cost of specialized requests.
How are clients nominated?
Eligibility is based on need and applications submitted by SMFC frontline workers. As frontline workers know their clients best, we rely on them to evaluate who would benefit from being sponsored.
