You Can Help Kids Live Better, Too

Here’s How You Can Be Part Of Craigwood’s Work For Better Mental Health In Families!

Children’s mental health has been identified as one of the most severely and chronically underfunded sectors of Ontario’s social framework. Our referring agencies are required to pay fees for therapeutic services, but provincial funding models have always fallen short of operating costs and overhead.

Financial and in-kind donations of goods or services will help to defray the costs of delivering service, treatment, and a better quality of life for some of Ontario’s most vulnerable young people.

We are a registered charitable organization, incorporated as a Children’s Mental Health Centre in 1983. Your donations over $10.00 are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt. (Reg #106991219RR0001)

Cash donations allow us to not only offset capital and operating costs but most importantly direct more resources to our direct treatment and support services. To make a donation to help us meet youth and family  treatment needs and reduce wait times, please contact us at: (519) 432-2623 or e-mail:

If you are not able to make a financial donation please consider a donation of goods.  Many of our youth come to us with nothing and have little to return to when they leave our care. You can help with your donation of youth clothing (males and females), household start-up items and homemaking supplies, DVD movies, sports equipment, duffel bags or luggage, groceries, bedding, games and personal items.

Craigwood sponsors help to alleviate shortfalls in our operational funding by committing themselves or their company to support specific programs and activities for our youth and families.

As a Sponsor, you may participate in Craigwood’s work by donating funds, time or good in kind. To find out more about how you can make a difference, simply contact our Head Office.
