Who We Are

In 2005, the Father Fred Foundation purchased the property at 834 Hastings Street, next to its own facility at 826 Hastings. The Foundation renovated the building to meet the specifications for infant, toddler and preschool care. The property is owned by the Foundation and leased to Angel Care Child Care, Inc. Both organizations are separate 501 C 3 non-profit corporations, governed by independent Boards of Directors. Angel Care shares the following values with the Foundation: both are faith based, both maintain commitments to serving all families, and both emphasize interactions characterized by respect and dignity.


Core Values

Our core values are:

  • Faith-based Principles:
  • We treat all people with dignity and compassion.

  • We make scheduling, financial and programming adjustments as needed and as possible.
  • Team Environment & Development:
