Frequently Asked Questions
How can I locate Child Welfare Services in my area?
Who is Until The Last Child?
We are a business-minded charity that exists to help to complete Canadian families. We exist so that every child in Canada who needs a healthy, permanent home with a nurturing family gets one at the earliest opportunity. We work alongside Child Welfare Agencies, encouraging and supporting innovation. We provide funding and other necessary resources to enhance stable outcomes for children in care.
Why should I give?
Canada is a prosperous, developed country and yet hundreds of thousands of children are at risk or in the active care of child welfare systems. Apart from the fact that children are without permanent families, this completely solvable problem has a huge social toll in lost productivity, diminished tax revenues and costly social services. Harnessing Canada’s collective resources, we have a practical plan to relegate this problem to the history books. UTLC works alongside Child Welfare Agencies by supporting and funding innovation. Our vision: 30,000 homes by 2020.
