What We Do
‘‘We are committed to developing and supporting high quality programs in the community that have proven effective at positively impacting the lives of single mothers and their children.’’
We roll up our sleeves. We collect and distribute supplies, provide bursaries for educational and vocational training, invest in community programs, and 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.
“Cause We Care is committed to bridging the gap between those with needs, and those who can help meet those needs.“
