The Cause We Care Foundation Single Mothers Support Fund is a holistic new fund supporting single mothers who are restricted by financial barriers. The Single Mothers Support Fund is intended to assist women to strengthen their educational and economic capacity, and will provide financial assistance for women wishing to gain new, or update existing, skills and qualifications with accessible funds not provided by government or any other agency.
On March 22, 2011, the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Public Library, and the Vancouver YWCA announced a joint project that will 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.
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.
Many children have nowhere to go after school that’s safe or supervised. There are currently 12 schools in Metro Vancouver that are deemed as “inner city”. With your generous donations, we funnel much needed funds to front-line organizations and inner city schools where the need is the greatest.
