Ever since our doors opened in the fall of 2010, children between the ages of 6 and 12 get on a free CityKidz Ministries bus to attend the Saturday Playhouse that presents a life-changing message of hope. Starting with 19 children from the Overbrook area in Ottawa in September 2010, CityKidz now has 80 plus children registered. Amidst all the fun, songs and games that the Saturday Playhouse provides, we are helping to break the poverty cycle in the lives of the children who attend. Through our one-on-one role-modeling and practical, dynamic teaching, utilizing songs, games and zany antics, CityKidz Ottawa effectively builds hope and creates a place for faith to grow empowering children to "do what's right" and follow their dreams. CityKidz Ottawa is funded solely by concerned citizens like yourself. We have our Dream Banquet and Silent Auction coming up on November 17th. Will you come and bring your friends? Every dollar spent in Ottawa, stays in Ottawa for the benefit of Ottawa children. We need the community to provide the resources to keep this vital organization going to transform this city one child at a time.
