What We Do

‘‘Our voices are strong. Our strategy is consistent. Together we are a unique, powerful conduit for change. We believe that change is necessary, change is possible, change is you - and change is us.’’

We roll up our sleeves. We collect and distribute supplies, fill backpacks, and we provide emergency funding to women and kids in desperate situations.

We look to address the severe challenges that face single moms in need every single day. Challenges such as affordable, supportive housing; affordable and safe childcare during working hours, and educational resources to help unlock career opportunities.

To date, we have raised over $3.2 million, including a $1.5 million Capital Campaign, and given over $800,000 to single mothers and their families through a number of initiatives. We have distributed over 5,000 food hampers at Christmas, filled over 1,550 backpacks with school supplies for children going back to school, and provided over 2,100 care packages at Mother's Day. We fund after school programs at 4 inner city schools in the Lower Mainland, assist over 300 kids go to school break programs, assist families with daycare costs, and arrange job training for women trying to strive towards economic independence. And we keep doing it, throughout the year, every year.

“Cause We Care is committed to bridging the gap between those with needs, and those who can help meet those needs.“
  • 1 in every 2 BC children in single parents were living in poverty in 2015

  • 2017 homeless count recorded 386 homeless children and youth

  • Over 80% of lone parent families on welfare are single mother-led

We analyze where the need is, where our funds can have the greatest impact and how we can support our mission. We look to investigate, review and try to address the severe challenges that face single moms in need every single day. Challenges such as affordable and supportive housing, affordable and safe childcare during working hours, and educational resources to help unlock career opportunities. By opening these doors, we help single mothers in the Lower Mainland to reach their full potential – and enable them to care for, educate and provide for their children.

Through popular annual and bi-annual events, strategic partnerships with generous corporations and seasonal fundraising campaigns, we are able to bring money in through a number of revenue streams.

Cause We Care Foundation partners and invests in frontline organizations and institutions that directly support single mothers and children in need. We roll up our sleeves. We collect and distribute supplies. We fill backpacks. And we provide emergency funding to women and kids in desperate situations.
