Through our Family Forward Fund, we help fund childcare for single mother-led families, allowing mothers to remain in or return to the workforce. As well as providing a safe and dependable place for the kids to spend their days, daycare assists the children with learning and socialization that prepares them to enter kindergarten.
In September 2017 Cause We Care Foundation created the Family Forward Fund and made a $100,000 12-month commitment to support the licensed childcare program at Ray-Cam Co-operative Centre. The fund currently supports 40 children, aged 2½ to 5 years, in licensed childcare and out-of-school care options. The fund also provides support to 5 and 6-year-olds transitioning to kindergarten, some of whom require additional care plans, and students who are held back in childcare due to additional needs to ensure they can be successful when they start kindergarten.
