We believe thriving children create thriving communities. To that end, we focus on a community-wide response to childhood trauma that combines excellence in treatment, state-of-the-art education, and community oriented prevention initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence and impact of child maltreatment and promoting the safe and healthy development of children.

The mission of the Hamilton Community Foundation is "to drive positive change, by connecting people, ideas, and resources". And HCF certainly did that in 2013/14 for the Community Child Abuse Council, with grants from several of the funds they administer. As HCF celebrates its 60th anniversary, we congratulate them on their many accomplishments and thank them for their contributions to the vitality of Hamilton and its citizens.
