Event Sponsorship 

Did you know there are currently over 6000 kids living in foster care in Ontario? The ACO plays a significant role in promoting awareness about these young people waiting for a family to grow up and grow old in.  


Over 1000 of these youth turn 18 each year and are then on their own. Although some beat the odds, most face a very difficult future including; 

  • not being able to graduate high school,
  • being homeless,
  • being unemployed,
  • being incarcerated,
  • struggling with mental health issues and
  • having their own children come into foster care.

We work towards a community where all children have a family forever, which has been shown to be the number one remedy to these challenges.
