YWCA Cause We Care House

A Safe and Affordable Place to call Home

Cause We Care Foundation is proud to support a critically important housing project with the YWCA.

Cause We Care House was opened in April 2017 as a joint project between the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Public Library, and YWCA of Metro Vancouver.  The building includes a full-service public library along with 21 units of subsidized housing for single mothers and over 3000 square feet of program space. Cause We Care Foundation raised $1.5 million dollars to support the development of this critical housing. 

Cause We Care House has made a profound and permanent impact on the Downtown East Side since opening in 2017. The facility offers a broad range of resources for healthy, peaceful, well-rounded living – from healthcare to employment training, fun activities in the play area, and literacy and learning in the library. With its integrated approach to developing crucial life skills in a safe, nurturing environment, this multi-faceted project has changed the lives of many single mothers and their children for the better.
