How You Can Help


The John Howard Society of North Island encourages and welcomes donations to support our work in helping to create safer, healthier communities. Research demonstrates that early interventions targeted at risk factors can change the paths of young people.  Your contribution will help us to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable youth and families.  Donations may be given for general use or targeted to specific programs or services. 


Two of our initiatives that currently need your support are the KidStart Volunteer Mentoring Program and the Youth Enhancement Fund.  KidStart is a preventative volunteer mentoring program focusing on the positive development of children and youth ages 6 - 18.  Mentoring services are delivered by carefully screened and trained volunteers.  You can help KidStart by becoming a volunteer mentor, making a donation, providing a discount on recreational activities, or signing up as a KidStart Champion sponsor. 



The Youth Enhancement Fund pays for special expenses for youth that are not covered by other funding, including dental care, emergency groceries and transportation, household items for young people living independently, and job readiness expenses.  Donations are always welcome to support youth needs. 


After receiving your contribution we will promptly issue a charitable donation receipt.


The Society also greatly appreciates those who have been thoughtful with bequests. If you would like to leave a bequest please contact us for more information, or see your lawyer.
