How to Help


The operations of Hopewell Children's Homes are funded through subsidies from the Ministry of Community and Social Services and the Ministry of Children's and Youth Services, as well fees for service, donations and fundraising.

We would not be able to run our programs without donations and fundraising support in addition to government funding. Over our history, much of that support has been spontaneous, the remaining came in through fundraising activities, with the help of parents, board members and staff.

Hopewell now offers a number of ways that you can contribute to our ongoing stability. And because Hopewell is a registered charity, all donations are eligible for a full tax receipt.


Hopewell Heroes

Hopewell Heroes is an annual giving program. Our true heroes are the children and adults that we support, as well as the staff which does the hands on care.

You too can become a Hopewell Hero by donating a minimum $500 per year. Your donation can be a one-time gift or spread out over the year. You will be recognized in our newsletter, website and at our Hopewell Heroes BBQ.
