Our Big Dream

We believe every child matters and every child counts.

CityKidz was founded on a big dream to see a future free of child poverty; a future where all children have equal opportunity to thrive and achieve their full potential.

Through faithhope and love, we seek to transform lives and end child poverty, one child at a time.

Child Poverty in Regina




1 in 5

Regina children are growing up in poverty.

The stresses and deprivations of poverty affect children in their homes, their schools, their communities, and their hearts.

Poverty denies opportunities and undermines childhood development in ways that put children at a disadvantage in so many critical aspects of their lives. It makes it difficult for them to achieve their full potential and break the cycle of poverty for future generations.

45% of Indigenous children are living in poverty

1 in 3 children growing up in poverty live in families with full-time, year-round employment

45% of Saskatchewan food bank clients are children.
