A Child's Voice Foundation", a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and managing programs that tangibly support and enhance the physical and emotional well-being of financially disadvantaged children who are facing illness or disability.
For a full picture of what we are, why we are, and what we do, please go to our website www.acvf.ca.
By working directly with health and social care professionals, the Foundation is able to reach children who are falling between the cracks and have nowhere else to turn. The financial challenges that arise when caring for a sick or disabled child can be overwhelming and A Child's Voice Foundation is determined to provide the necessary care and support when all other doors have closed.
Our focus is to provide assistance that will enhance the quality of a child's life and have a lasting, long-term effect. Our mission is to support and enhance the physical and emotional well-being of disadvantaged children by providing products and services not otherwise provided by levels of government, insurance or other organizations. We strive to fill in the cracks, bridge the gap and open a door when all others have closed. . Caring for a child who is sick or disabled is not only emotionally challenging but can be financially devastating. Thus it is our mission to make things a little easier for these children, their families and caregivers. Through our programs, Angel Hair for Kids®, and Kids Life Line™, we are able to help those in need through a difficult time. In most cases, A Child's Voice® Foundation is their last hope.
The foundation has received hundreds and hundreds of requests for our Kids Life Line™, from children suffering from different medical conditions and disabilities such as cancer, autism, alopecia, burns, scoliosis, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and many other medical and physical disabilities and conditions.
Angel Hair for Kids® is a program of A Child's Voice® Foundation that provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantaged children in Canada who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment. Using hair that is generously donated to the program, the foundation can create wigs and hair systems, and provide them at no cost to the child's family. It takes 10-12 donated ponytails to make one hair prosthesis, and $800 to $1000 is budgeted by the foundation to cover manufacturing and related costs.
