Our Partners

There are so many local organizations who partner with us each and every year to make our program a success. Their involvement is hugely critical to us and we appreciate every single one.

Our approach

Our History

There are no government resources available to our Agency for this type of sharing at Christmas, only the gifts and money donated through the Christmas Program.

For over thirty years, Family and Children’s Services assisted families in Hants County at Christmas time because of donations from concerned people and groups within our communities. Now, this program is run by volunteers and is funded almost entirely by our community.

Over the years our programs have evolved because of the level and type of giving requested by the generous people of Hants County.

Our Society manages the Christmas Angels programming and raises money for the families and children of Hants County for Christmas each year.
