Board of Directors

A Message from the President

Bob Webb, President of the Board
Bob Webb, President of the Board.

Despite past successes, our work is not done. Kids still need us.

Toronto is still the Number #1 child poverty capital of Canada, and it’s on the rise in our very own backyard. That fact was echoed recently in Toronto Foundation’s 2017/2018 report, Toronto’s Vital Signs, indicating that child poverty is there and still hurting our most vulnerable.

For over 100 years, Moorelands Kids has stood beside thousands of kids in need. Our job was then, as it remains today, to help kids grow as young leaders and to do so while providing them with safe and fun-filled experiences at a crucial time in their lives.

We intend to stay our course but to do much more.
