The Family Assistance Fund
The Family Assistance Fund is available to families receiving services through THRIVE to help with covering the cost of equipment and other items and needs recommended by staff to help children and youth who receive services through THRIVE. This small fund is maintained through our THRIVE Foundation, your generous donations designated for this purpose and through staff fundraisers.
In order to meet the needs of as many families as possible, we designate the funds to:
- Support the cost of bringing children to the Centre, by taxi, for clinic appointments and programs;
- Offset 25% of the cost of items sold in the Tuck Shop;
- Grant up to $125 annually to families in need of assistance with the purchase of items or to offset costs incurred related to a child/youth’s development needs.
If you wish to make a donation to this fund, please make cheques payable to THRIVE Child Development Centre Foundation. Cheques may be mailed in or dropped off at reception in our Sault Ste. Marie location.
If you wish to make a request for funding, please connect with one of your THRIVE service providers or Reception who will help you fill out a Request for Funds form.
