The Family Support Fund offers financial support to Holland Bloorview families during a time of transition or stress. It may support a client’s respite needs, equipment, recreation and life skills programs, modifications to home or car, medications or other medical needs experienced during their journey.

Decisions are based on how the funding will impact the client’s physical safety, wellness and overall impact on the family and the family’s financial need.

Dear clients and families,

The family support fund is a program managed according to a fiscal year (April 1st- March 31st) and we have been creating dedicated forms for each fiscal year as we go.

As in previous years, we have created and released a new, 2020-2021 fiscal year application form available to you here as well as in the family resource center at Holland Bloorview’s main site.

The new form was designed based on feedback we received from users, clients, families and staff at the end of previous fiscal year to create a better process and smoother access.

Please make sure to read the instruction document thoroughly prior to filling out the application form.

After April 1st, 2020 we will no longer accept any older application form version from any previous fiscal years.


Family Support Fund Instructions - this document is a must read document before submitting an application.
