About This Charity

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote and foster safer and healthier communities by providing appropriate programs of rehabilitation, education, prevention and healing for those who need opportunity to achieve, maintain or regain a balance within their communities.

About Our Charity

Three of our initiatives that currently need support are the KidStart Volunteer Mentoring Program, Delaware Youth Drop In, and the Youth Enhancement Fund.

KidStart is a preventative volunteer mentoring program focusing on the positive development of children and youth ages 6-18. Mentoring services are delivered by carefully screened and trained volunteers. KidStart relies on donations, grants, monthly sponsors (KidStart Champions), and Gaming funds - Province of BC. 

Delaware Youth Drop In is open weekday mornings for young people ages 13-24 and provides a hot breakfast and connections to job search, health care, and other community services. Delaware is funded solely by donations, grants, and community partnerships.  

The Youth Enhancement Fund pays for special expenses for youth that are not covered by other funding, including urgent dental care, emergency groceries and transportation, household items for young people living independently, and job readiness expenses.
