Gentle Hands Annual Christmas Appeal

The end of the year is fast approaching with only a few weeks until Christmas.

This year’s appeal is an ambitious one. We have a selection of gifts to choose from, to suit a range of budgets. Some of these items are in desperate need, some are essential in the daily running of our home and some will directly bless the children in our care.

Through your generosity, this appeal will have a significant impact on the children, staff and overall running of Gentle Hands. These gifts will help us to continue to run a home filled with love and provide the care and support our children so deserve.

We are also able to arrange gift certificates if you would like to use this as a present for someone this festive season.

If you would like to be involved in our Christmas Appeal, please email us at nathan.wheeley@gentlehands.org.

Please feel free to share this opportunity with your family, friends, workmates, church etc. and spread joy of giving this Christmas.
Ballet Partnership Renewed

Gentle Hands is pleased to announce the continuation of our corporate partnership with Telus Foundation. Telus has generously continued to help support
Gentle Hand's Ballet Program. 

Gentle Hands’ goal is to meet the individual needs of every child in our care. We strive to simply be a home. A place of safety, refuge, and family. With every new child, our caregivers begin the beautiful process of attachment. This process is not an easy road, but a road that leads to building strong, Godly young men and women. Gentle Hands' Ballet Program is an integral part of our holistic therapeutic care for our children.
Gentle Hands Ballet’s value cannot be underestimated in promoting health and providing an outlet for healing process and release of trauma through movement. Telus’s grant has provided the funding for obtaining new materials such as shoes, tights, flooring and leotards. It has helped Gentle Hands pay for professional lessons, as well as pay the salary of the instructor. We are so thankful for their support.
