Friends of Children is a registered charity providing free and confidential service to Northern BC and East Kootenay families travelling to access medical treatments for their children. Our goal is to relieve emotional and financial strain by assisting with the fuel, accommodation and meal costs associated with these appointments, surgeries and consultations. We may also be able to assist with therapies and specialized equipment related to a child’s medical condition.

Each year Friends of Children receives and approves over 375 requests from families for assistance. We support each of these requests through direct funding and/or coordination with other agencies to provide information and access to additional supports specific to the child’s condition and the family’s need.

Friends of Children is funded through the generosity of sponsors, government grants, private donors and fundraising events. As valued members of our organization, volunteers assist with fundraising and society operations. Friends of Children works hard to maintain our valuable services to Northern BC and East Kootenay families so they are able to put their attention where it should be; on their children.

Whether you are needing assistance or wanting to provide help, Friends of Children is pleased you have found us. Together we can ensure Northern BC and East Kootenay children receive the support they need to be healthy and happy.
