Holiday Dreams

Thank you for being our Partner in CARING and filling hearts with hope! 

The CAFH Staff and Volunteers are proud to lead the annual Holiday Dreams Community Giving Program.  We are excited to connect with YOU (our Partners in CARING) and provide you with opportunities to create warm, lifelong memories for those in need . . . a true gift.

We have helpful hints and ideas to help you plan for ‘giving and caring’ this holiday season with colleagues, family and friends.


With your help, we brighten the holiday season by delivering necessities and gifts to those who have been referred to the Holiday Dreams Program through their Halton CAS support worker. Overwhelming and significant challenges such as ill health, domestic violence, poverty, youth homelessness, unemployment or caring for a child who has serious physical, emotional or developmental difficulties are just some of the reasons for referrals.

Please be sure to coordinate your donation with us to ensure that your kind efforts align with the needs of the families and youth we serve. Please contact:
