You can help children and families learn, grow and reach their potential.
Many people wonder how they can support programs and services in their community. There are many opportunities including offering your time, services or financial support. Some people have specific skills or resources to share while others have ideas of what they hope their financial contribution will provide. As The PACE Program is a registered charity, all donations are tax deductible.
- With your support, we can provide additional therapy for children who have experienced loss or trauma.
- With your help, we can reach far greater numbers of children and families in our community by providing much needed stability and continuity of services.
- With your support, you can help ensure a safe, secure and stable haven for families who have often experienced much unpredictability.
- With your help, we can work, in partnership with others, towards preventing the heartbreak and huge financial burden which face our families and society when services are not available.
