Founded in 1993, CityKidz has worked hard to increase resiliency and inspire big dreams for Hamilton children living in low-income communities. Guided by faith, hope and love for the children and their families, our programs provide inspirational experiences and nurture personal relationships, one child at a time. Our program model is designed to begin with children as early as age 3, and journey with them until they graduate high-school. Each core program is intended to build on the outcomes and successes of the one before. Our ultimate aim is for all children to thrive and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Evidence based research has validated that the longer children remain involved in our programming the greater the impact and outcome for their lives. Since 1993 we have continued to grow in capacity; today over 2000 children in Hamilton are actively involved each week.
The Joy and Hope of Haiti is comprised of a group of individuals who volunteer their time and energy to help the children and people of Haiti.
The Haiti Projects run under The Joy and Hope of Haiti are blessed by our many generous workers, all of whom give of their time, talents and energy voluntarily. No one is paid; everyone who travels to Haiti as part of a work team pays his/her own way - and because of this, there are no administration costs. That means that every donation of goods or money made to the Haiti Project truly finds its way to the people we want to help - the Haitians.
