We need your help

Life is uncertain, but what is certain is that hard times can bring out either the best or the worst in ourselves and in each other.

Let’s bring out the best in each other.

We encourage everyone to embrace the chaos and give in to not knowing. Learning to get comfortable with our own discomfort is the key to being present. Even in chaos, flowers bloom.

This is a completely unprecedented time. Please, be kind to yourselves and to others. If there was ever a time to build longer tables and not higher fences, it’s now.

Margaret Mead

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Testimonial

  • Yesterday a lovely mom come over and dropped off a birthday present for my daughter that turned 5. I was so grateful and was almost in tears when her little boy went to had me the gift. What I thought wasn’t going to be a great birthday for my daughter turned into a wonderful day. Love this group!

     
  • I’d just like to say to all the moms have helped me this past week!! All the moms that gave advice and help me with dealing with unexpected illness in the family I had. I wish I can tag all the moms that helped me here. Thank you Lorraine Giesbrecht for the interview clothes and more that I wasn’t expecting. I got the job. First job in 8 years. Thank you for the support. This group is truly amazing!!

  • The support we have received from Mama’s for Mama’s absolutely blew me out of the water and surpassed my wildest dreams. The clothes, jackets, diapers and wipes are already being used, keeping the kids warm and dry and relieving stress. The real Christmas tree, decorations and lights provided myself and the children hours of entertainment, excitement and gratefulness. I haven’t seen them that excited about anything in months, they were literally jumping up and down squealing with excitement. At bedtime, they told me the best part of their day was putting decorations on the “big, huge, massive tree” and they were grateful for “the happy Christmas things.

Other Side of Homelesness

To understand how a mom with a newborn and a toddler can end up living in their car in Canada, we must first re-examine our perception of poverty and the metrics that define it. Our current system does not accurately reflect the cost of living per capita when determining poverty cut-off lines, leaving thousands of caregivers at a disadvantage. Their income might appear adequate when compared to a national average, but in reality, it falls short of meeting their needs.

Addressing homelessness among caregivers and their children involves tackling both relative and absolute homelessness. Relative homelessness refers to those living in inadequate housing conditions, while absolute homelessness involves individuals lacking any form of shelter. Homelessness is more than just a lack of shelter—it's an obstacle to health, stability, and opportunity. Our campaign is committed to creating sustainable solutions that provide not only housing but also the necessary support systems to help families thrive.

By emphasizing advocacy, community engagement, and strategic partnerships, we aim to build a future where every caregiver and child has a safe and stable place to call home.
