Funding

Funding Sources

  • Ministry of Children and Youth Services for the Province of Ontario. Approximately 30% of our budget comes from the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
  • Fee for Service (Children’s Aid Societies). If a child is a ward of the Children’s Aid Society, we enter into a contract with them on a fee for service basis to provide treatment, care and supervision of the child for the duration of his stay. Depending on the number of boys we have in this situation, we can see as much as 62% of our budget.
  • Parental Contributions. Parents are expected to pay for clothing, recreational registration fees and medical costs for their son.
  • Individual Donations
  • Corporate Sponsors and Donors
  • Fundraising.  The Boys’ Home has four major annual fundraising events:
    1. Father’s Day Run/Walk/Skate/Bike
    2. Spring Bulletin (Newsletter)
    3. Men Who Cook Gala Night
    4. Christmas Annual Appeal (Newsletter)

The Boys’ Home is also the beneficiary of several other fundraising events sponsored by other organizations throughout the greater community. These include Race to Erase and The Quality Control Council of Canada’s Golf Tournament organized by Mike Blondin.

In addition, Huron House was one of 26 agencies that participated in Giving Tuesday in 2014. Giving Tuesday is a national charity event held on the Tuesday after Black Friday. This event involved 26 charities, including Huron House.  All donations from the campaign were shared equally among the agencies involved. Find out more at http://www.sarnialambtongives.ca/.

If you would like more information about any of these events, give us a call. We’d be glad to help.

With up to 28 teenage boys, we always have a need for sports equipment, computers, bicycles, table games and even food donations. Donations can be made by contacting the administration office at 519-869-4000. Cheques should be made out to Huron House Boys’ Home.
