About Chisholm Services for Children
Chisholm Services for Children is the only non-profit organization in Central Nova Scotia offering a long-term care program, which specializes in early intervention. Chisholm is dedicated to guiding children who face severe adverse circumstances like neglect and abuse, to a realization of self-worth. Chisholm helps children develop skills and capacities to function successfully in a community setting and grow as healthy, stable individuals.
Chisholm also provides a community based after school literacy program for children from primary to grade six who are reading below grade level or who have been diagnosed with a learning disability. This service is provided to the community from four locations in the HRM and has an annual registration of approximately 200 children.
