Kids Kottage: Who we are
Kids Kottage Foundation is Edmonton and area’s only 24-hour crisis intervention and prevention shelter for infants and children. When a family is under toxic levels of stress, whether it be from the pandemic, food insecurity, homelessness, the effects of poverty, mental or physical health issues, abuse, and or trauma- children often become the hidden victims.

Why do we need you?
Children in our community need our help. We have seen homeless preschoolers, children who have gone days without food, those who have witnessed their caregivers being beaten, those who have been beaten themselves. If we want a vibrant, thriving community, we have to build a community that protects and cares for the most vulnerable among us. We provide a safe place for infants and children to stay and connect their caregivers with the resources they need to provide a brighter future for their families, but we can't do it alone. Each year, Kids Kottage Foundation is responsible for raising over half of its annual operating budget.

Become a Sponsor of Kids Kottage Foundation’s 27th Anniversary Radiothon (December 2021)
Each year, we invite businesses and individuals in our community to support our annual Radiothon campaign through Match Money donations. Last year, businesses and people like you came together to help us raise over $100,000 through this program! That’s over 400 safe nights for children in need in Edmonton. This campaign begins in October and is a great introduction to who Kids Kottage is, and the work we do to ensure the safety and wellbeing of infants and children.

Who says donations always have to be monetary? There are a number items we are in need of at the Kottage at any given time, and we happily accept in-kind donations. You can see our wishlist of items here.
At this time our in-Kottage volunteer opportunities are closed. However, we are very optimistic that they will return. Be the first to know when you can come to the Kottage and play, read and snuggle our infants and children, giving them the caring and safe environment they desperately need.
