Support Holland Bloorview's Family Advisory Committee


Your help will provide much-needed comfort for inpatient families

The Family Advisory Committee is comprised of past and present clients and their families. We are a group of dedicated volunteers who are committed to ensuring that the voice of the client is heard and the perspective of the family is considered in all aspects of the hospital’s day-to-day functioning.

It is our goal to enhance the experience of the over 7,000 patients who receive services at Holland Bloorview each year, helping them and their families to feel supported, respected and welcomed. To do this, we need your help.

We are raising funds to provide comfort packages to the parents of the 600 children who are admitted as inpatients each year.  Most of these children arrive at Holland Bloorview after being treated at an acute care hospital. The average length of an inpatient stay at Holland Bloorview is approximately 2 months. 

Your donation will allow us to continue to provide much-needed welcome kits containing toiletries and other small comfort items which help in the transition process for newly admitted inpatient families.

Quote from an Inpatient Mom

“After spending time in a hospital setting already, I was mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted when we arrived at Holland Bloorview. This kind gesture lifted our spirits, knowing that we were not alone.”

Other initiatives of the Family Advisory Committee include providing coffee and tea in the two inpatient family lounges as well as the accommodations lounge, hosting various events such as coffee nights where staff and families can get together in an informal, relaxed environment and a movie night for the families of all Holland Bloorview patients.

Having a child with a disability is demanding on families emotionally, financially and spiritually. We believe that it is the small gestures, such as these, which help to foster a sense of community and belonging for all patients of Holland Bloorview and their families.


Please consider making a donation in support of the Family Advisory Committee.

With thanks,

Jean Hammond and Fred Char, Co-chairs Family Advisory Fund Raising Committee
