Just as an arc refers to part of a circumference of a circle, we at Arc Children’s Centre are committed to forming a meaningful part of the Circle of Care for children in need.

Like how a star lights up the night sky, our star shows that hope can illuminate even the weariest heart. Arc aims to be a sanctuary where hope shines for the children and families in our care.

Our star icon consists of 5 arcs. Each arc represents one of our 5 core values:

It all began with a boy named Raphael.

Raphael was a brave little boy who lost his fight with cancer. Before his passing, Raphael had shared that his hope was for children to have a safe, welcoming place to rest and spend the day. His selfless wish is what spurred the creation of Arc, so other children like Raphael will benefit. The “R” in our name is a loving tribute to him.

Since July 2011, Arc has helped >150 children
with cancer or a life-threatening illness
and >60 of their siblings.

As an independent charity centre, everything we do for the kids is made possible thanks to the kindness and generosity of public donations and corporate sponsorships.
