Why your Support Matters

Our Purpose

Every year Lutherwood helps to strengthen the lives of more than 16,600 individuals in our community and give them hope for their futures. Since the money to serve them is not fully provided by our government partners, the Lutherwood Child and Family Foundation cultivates relationships within our community to generate additional financial resources, raise awareness and develop facilities to better serve those supported by Lutherwood.

We primarily support Lutherwood’s children’s mental health services, which provide a range of preventative and therapeutic programs, to help children and their families deal with social, emotional and behavioural challenges. We also provide funding for Prevention Services (Safe Haven Youth Services) as well as Housing Services for families at risk of homelessness.

With your help we can make sure that all children and families are supported to achieve hopeful and productive futures. An investment today can result in considerable savings for our community tomorrow.

Our Fundraising Programs

The Foundation raises funds for Lutherwood's programs for today and the future. The Today's Kids funds go directly to work supporting programming that same year. Donations are raised through direct mail requests, visits to donors, proposals and special events. Special gifts through bequests and insurance policies create resources for Lutherwood’s future. And, money raised through special capital campaigns helps Lutherwood develop facilities to serve children and families today and for the future.
