Ways To Give

Giving To Lumenus Is Giving Hope

When you give to Lumenus, you turn the light on for one more family so that they don’t fall through the cracks. A caregiver with a dependant in a mental health crisis. A 2SLGBTQ2+ teen without secure housing. A family in jeopardy of being separated. These are the members of our community you hoist up by donating.

Your help allows Lumenus to build capacity and reduce barriers to system access, so that we can offer much needed support to those with very special or complex needs sooner. Your help gives one more person a chance to be seen and supported.

Wait lists are long and funding constraints are a reality. As a non-profit organization, we appreciate your generosity. All donations are tax deductible. Our Charitable Registration Number is:  Lumenus Foundation #89035 8179 RR0001.
