WHEELS FOR THE DARLING HOME FOR KIDS


Since its inception in 2011, Wheels has raised over $600,000 in support of capital projects and the core programs offered at The Darling Home for Kids. 

Past projects have included the building of a wheelchair accessible playground, a tranquil therapeutic sculpture garden, renovations to a respite bedroom and the medication room at the Home, and most recently purchasing a wheelchair accessible vehicle to transport our children into the community.

The Impact of Your Ride

The Darling Home for Kids is a place of joy, filled with the smiles and laughter of children engaging in unique and enriching experiences. Located in Milton, we are a state-of-the-art facility providing respite, hospice palliative and residential care and since opening our doors in 2004, we have provided over 300,000 hours of service to children across Ontario.

Medically fragile children receive wonderful care in a beautiful, warm and home-like environment, which provides comfort and a break to families facing the daily challenges of caring for a child with complex medical needs. Families are supported knowing that there is a continuum of care from respite through to palliation and, when needed, end of life care.

It is our fundamental philosophy that all children be loved and valued, and given the opportunity to be challenged in an environment where they can thrive.

“The support The Darling Home for Kids provides goes beyond nurses caring for special needs children. They save families”

– Erin Gibson, Piper’s Mom

Every dollar raised from Ride with Wheels directly supports our programs and services at The Darling Home for Kids, helping to ensure that our Home is here when families need us the most.
