Your Support Helps Children and Families Thrive

Every year Lutherwood helps to strengthen the lives of more than 14,000 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.

Gifts to the foundation primarily support Lutherwood’s children’s mental health services, which provide a range of preventative and therapeutic programs, to help children, youth and their families cope with social, emotional and behavioural challenges. Additionally, donations fund prevention services, such as Safe Haven Youth Services and 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 futures. An investment today can result in considerable savings for our community tomorrow.

Meeting People Where They Are
Last year, Lutherwood’s Brief Community Mental Health (BCMH) Services helped 364 children and youth who are struggling with their mental health but are not accessing mental health supports and whose needs are not identified as urgent. Working in partnership with local medical clinics, BCMH services offer short-term coaching and treatment support including coordination with other community services to help improve the mental wellness of children, youth and their families.
