2018 Contest Winner

Coming Soon!

The McDougall Family


The McDougall Family!

2017 CONTEST WINNER We were delighted to reunite these sisters and their families for the holidays! After Petra settled down to start a family in Alberta, the long distance made it difficult to share quality time together with siblings and cousins back in Ontario—especially after Petra’s 3-year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Thankfully, the tumour was removed successfully, although health remains an ongoing source of concern. This Christmas season, the family received the miracle of good health and longed to find a way to spend the holidays together. Home for the Holidays was grateful have the opportunity to rejoin these families after many years apart, giving them a chance to enjoy the holiday season together.

The Millican Family


The Millican Family!

It was our privilege to reward Geoff’s generous volunteer work by reuniting him with his family this Christmas! Motivated by the desire to volunteer his time and help vulnerable people in need, Geoff packed his bags and moved to Los Angeles. Since then, he has spent time providing food and water at one of the largest homeless neighbourhoods in the United States. However, finances were too tight to allow Geoff to fly home for Christmas to visit his family and his aging grandparents. With some help from Home for the Holidays, Geoff got the chance to spend the season together with his family!
