Specialized Childcare Support for Moms with Cancer
The Nanny Angel Network (NAN) is a registered charity that provides free, specialized, Child Life informed childcare to families living with cancer in the GTA and Kingston. NAN’s flagship program, Nanny Angel Network Program for Children, provides a carefully screened and specially trained Nanny Angel volunteer for 4 hours per week of in-home support for families with children up to the age of 16. The Nanny Angel engages kids in fun, age-appropriate play and interaction that helps them build resilience so they can grow up to be healthy adults. In the case of a bereavement, NAN provides up to a year of additional support to families through their loss.
NAN delivers a variety of programs for kids 16 and under to help lessen the impact of cancer. NAN’s Homework Club provides a homework buddy to guide, encourage and help problem solve, so that kids can maintain a school routine and build confidence. And in the summer, NAN offers families struggling financially with a subsidy through the Ronda Green Camp Program for Children, so kids can attend summer camp.
NCFST is hosting a Ceremonial Circle instead of Culture Night to honour & mourn the 215 children found at the Kamloops Indian Residential School, B.C. The Circle will consist of prayers, songs and a talking circle to help process this difficult information.
