Who are we?

Chisholm Services for Children is a non-profit organization located in Halifax providing a long-term Child and Youth Caring Program, that specializes in early intervention, prevention and permanency planning. Chisholm is dedicated to guiding children twelve years of age and younger who face severe adverse circumstances like neglect and abuse, to a realization of self-worth. Chisholm helps children develop skills and capacities to function successfully in a community setting and grow as healthy, stable individuals.

Chisholm also offers a community based literacy program for children from primary to grade six who are reading below grade level or who have been diagnosed with a learning difference, in addition to providing a monthly group session for parents who have been approved to adopt by the Department of Community Services and waiting to welcome a child into their home.

When you purchase tickets to support Chisholm Services, you…

…help Chisholm purchase things like outdoor play items to boost confidence, motor skills and physical play.  Help to renovate a space so that is safe, bright, and functional; where our children learn how it feels to prepare healthy meals with safe adults.  It could also sponsor a child in the community who needs support to read at grade level but whose family must choose between food security or tutoring.

Don’t miss out on the chance to win incredible prizes while supporting local children!

The winners will be contacted to claim their prizes.

At Chisholm we often say “Every child at Chisholm has a story and it is a privilege to be part of their story. You may never know our children, but you are an important part of their story as well!” Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
