Make A Donation
Many children in Peel are at risk. You can help by Bridging the Gap.
BridgeWay Family Centre is a registered charity operating in the Region of Peel. We offer FREE programs to boost early learning and to support families and caregivers as they nurture the development of young children. Women experiencing poverty, family violence, lone-parenthood, teen pregnancy find help in our pre and post-natal programs.
Programs are funded through different levels of government and we are grateful.
Unfortunately, not all the supports, tools and resources needed by the children and families who seek us out are covered by this funding.
For the past 13 years, BridgeWay has raised funds through personal donations, foundation grants, charitable gaming, and other opportunities. These dollars fund our “Bridging the Gap” programs and they help families and children with:
Physical Literacy–Regular opportunities to explore activities inside and out which may create a lifelong commitment to fitness.
In My Neighbourhood—Family support and early learning programs where people need them the most.
Nutrition—A Registered Dietician teaches pregnant mothers and those with young children about the benefits of healthy cost-conscious eating.
Intergenerational Connections—We connect children and seniors in long term care facilities or residences so they can learn from and enjoy each other.
Mental Health – A qualified social worker assists families who are experiencing stressful situations while pregnant or parenting young children.
These program streams rely on donations from the community and people like you. One hundred percent of your donation received by BridgeWay goes to Bridging the Gap. If you are interested in supporting a Bridging the Gap program, please see the following links
