In 2010, Hospice Toronto created the Young Carers Program to support the needs of children and youth (ages 5-18) who are in a significant care-giving role for a family member. The additional stress of being a young carer can negatively impact multiple areas of development, including physical and mental health and emotional and psycho-social wellness. The Young Carers program provides therapeutic programming and peer-to-peer connections to help support children and youth in their care-giving journey.
Support our Young Carers team this year! Help us raise awareness and funds for Young Carers, ages 5-18, who find themselves in a significant care-giving role. Our Goal is to raise $10,000 for Young Carers to support therapeutic programming initiatives such as March Break and summer camp, monthly group programs. Ways to participate:
1. Register with Hospice Toronto to join our team. Contact us by phone at 416.364.1666 ext. 255 or email Lisa Bono at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Make a donation to Hospice Toronto, Young Carers Program (donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt).
