Our Vision and Mission


 We believe thriving children create thriving communities. To that end, we focus on a community-wide response to childhood trauma that combines excellence in treatment, state-of-the-art education, and community oriented prevention initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence and impact of child maltreatment and promoting the safe and healthy development of children.

The Y108/CHML Children’s Fund has been a generous supporter of Thrive Child and Youth Trauma Services for many years. In the past 10 years the Children’s Fund has donated over $40,000 to Thrive’s programs and services! This June, the Children’s Fund awarded $5720.00 to Thrive. This funding will assist us in moving children from our waitlist into assessment and treatment services—services that will assist in evaluating, addressing and alleviating trauma symptoms in a timelier manner.

“The Children’s Fund is respected in the community for providing vital funding to, and ongoing awareness of, children’s causes, programs and services in the Hamilton/Burlington area, working in partnership with CHML and Y108 as an independent non-governmental charitable organization.”

Having raised over $5 Million for local charities, the CHML Children’s Fund is truly dedicated to supporting the children and youth in our community.
Thank you to the Children’s Fund for this generous donation and for supporting children and youth through their healing journeys!!
