2019 Grant Recipient: Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington

We’re pleased that Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington is one of our grant recipients this year. This grant enables FACSFLA to grow their services and reach more families and children in our community.

FACSFLA is a not-for-profit agency that protects children from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect. For more than 100 years in Ontario, these Societies have been keeping children safe, helping parents build healthy families and providing safe and nurturing environments for young people. Recently, on August 1st the FACSFLA turned 125!

On top of the many services the FACSFLA provides, one of the amazing opportunities the organization gives is to send children to summer camp who otherwise would not be able to go. FACSFLA does all the work from planning to funding and everything in between. During summer camp children make lifelong memories, experience self-growth, learn new skills and more.

Another amazing service the FACSFLA offers are bursaries for post-secondary education to the children in their services. In June, they awarded the most post-secondary bursaries in its 125-year history. More than $70,000 in college and university bursaries were awarded to 14 youth in care! The FACSFLA is committed to life-long solutions to success. Providing access to education empowers people to reach their full potential and lead a fulfilling life in our communities.

Even small contributions made to the FACSFLA make a huge difference. The FACSFLA is also in need for foster parents, volunteers and board members. Also look out for the ‘Tree of Hope’ fundraising, which puts toys, food, clothing and more under the tree for the kids and families they serve.
