Chisholm Services for Children

At Chisholm, we help children who face adversity in life by helping them discover their own potential. The possibilities for their future grow from a sense of hope and belonging in their community.

Chisholm Services for Children AGM

Join us on June 26th from 4:00 - 5:30 to learn more about the care and support provided to children over the past year from our Child and Youth Caring Program and the LINKS Literacy Program. Although our history dates back to 1890, we will celebrate our 20th Anniversary of oversight provided by a community-based Board of Directors. Looking forward to sharing more of our accomplishments this year and those to come. Hope to see you on the 26th!

Land Acknowledgement

Chisholm acknowledges that we are on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq, Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title.

We also acknowledge that the people of African descent have been in Nova Scotia for over 400 years. We honour and offer gratitude to those ancestors of African descent who came before us to this land.
