Support families in financial crisis due to COVID-19

COVID-19 means children with disabilities are at a heightened risk. Kids with compromised immune systems, or who need ventilators, are often forced into strict, prolonged isolation to survive. And parents are forced to isolate with them, often sacrificing paid work for an unknown period of time. These families are worried. Not only are they worried about the health of their children. They’re also worried about making it through without an income when they're already financially strained from the higher cost of raising a child with a disability. Fortunately, families have a lifeline in Holland Bloorview's Family Support Fund. Donations to the Family Support Fund will help families to access $1,000 so that they can get the equipment that keeps their child alive and safe, and the vital medications their child relies on but are not covered by government or insurance plans.
