How a branch community works across canada

Branch Communites

Mamas for Mamas removes barriers to poverty relief through digital sharing economies and a charitable safety net support from head office hub. As a tech-charity, we create a safe digital space where Mother’s can reach out for help to fill the gaps in economic disparity, emotional poverty, and community isolation. We have dozens of digital branches nationwide addressing these varying levels of debt and an associated nonprofit office to fill the gaps in what they’re able to access on the peer-based platform.

Beyond providing access to items from the digital sharing economies, we also offer job opportunities through based job banks, and training for sustainable food growing practices to fill gaps in food security. Mamas is a nationwide community of Mother’s donating, sharing supporting and connecting with one another to improve quality of life and create a local and national connection.

We are addressing the maternal mental illness epidemic by building a sense of community among other caregivers while offering a physical space in which to meet, access at-risk comprehensive support and accessing items not available on the peer-based platform at our Karma Market (free store) and monthly swaps for satellite branches. Mamas provide reproductive health information and support for young mamas and their families through our registered social worker. We ensure the well-being of the children in our communities through no-fee youth mental health counselling and acting as a liaison with the ministry of child and family development when child safety concerns present.

The opposite of poverty isn’t wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice. If you need help or support, come to Mamas.

Support a Family this Christmas!

 

Hymers Private Wealth of RBC Dominion Securities is the proud Platinum Partner for the organization’s 2021 Christmas Hamper Program.

The holiday spirit is about giving and spreading joy throughout the communities in which we live and serve. In 2020, we distributed over 6,000 Christmas hampers to families in Canada and over 2,500 in the Okanagan alone! This year we have had an exponential increase in the number of families who need our support. We are faced with an enormous challenge this year, and with your help, you can provide a heart-warming outcome and a little magic this time of year.

Christmas can be the most stressful and challenging time of the year for many. The knowledge that someone has thought about them this Christmas, that they are not alone, can lift the spirits of so many caregivers and children. This year you can donate to a family in need or sponsor a family directly in our community.
