YWCA Cause We Care House

Helping Build A New Facility For Housing, Learning, And More

Cause We Care Foundation is very excited to be a part of a critically important housing project with the YWCA.

On March 22, 2011, the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Public Library, and the Vancouver YWCA announced a joint project that would include a new, full-service public library along with 21 units of subsidized housing and over 3000 square feet of program space for single mothers and their children, operated by the YWCA. The facility opened in April 2017.

CWCF is thrilled to continue to participate in this initiative: an opportunity to make a profound, permanent impact on the Downtown East Side. 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 will change many lives for the better.

The housing component of this facility is called the YWCA Cause We Care House, as we have pledged significant funds to help build the structure. This subsidized housing facility is now open to women and children who need a safe, affordable place to call home – and provides a path towards a brighter, independent future.
