Since 1912 we’ve helped
Moorelands Kids is an innovative children’s charity empowering kids from low-income
We exist to empower kids to transform their lives.
Children and youth affected by poverty face barriers that other kids don’t. One in four kids in Toronto is living in poverty. In the communities we serve, three in four kids are living in poverty.
We believe that every kid has the right to succeed, regardless of their life circumstance. The Moorelands Kids’ team and our skill-building programs empower children and youth to overcome the barriers to achieving success.
What makes Moorelands Kids’ programs unique?
Our leadership programs using the Moorelands Kids’ Habits & Qualities offer year-round experiences where kids can learn, practice and benefit from valuable life and leadership skills. We set the stage for kids as young as six to become leaders – first of themselves and then in their communities.
