WHO WE ARE
The Batshaw Youth and Family Centres Foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of concerned volunteers. The Foundation’s mission is to help break the cycle of neglect, abuse, and failure experienced by many children aged 0-18 years and their families. The Foundation supports the clients of the Batshaw Youth and Family Centres, living on the island of Montreal, when public funds are not available.
Through different annual fundraising initiatives, the Foundation raises an average of $250,000 per year to fund programs of assistance offered to youth living with their own families, in foster care, in residential placement and transitioning to independent living.
The Foundation’s programs are designed to create an environment for youth to feel empowered and help pave the way for a brighter future.
Donations are needed and accepted throughout the year. Please donate today.
