Calgary Angel Pump Program

About the program

Many families in our community are in need of a breast pump so that they can provide a nourishing and free food source for their babies. While we believe in the “fed is best” philosophy, we want to be able to support the mamas who have chosen a breastfeeding journey. Sometimes mamas in need have situations arise with ill, or hospitalized infants who are unable to feed directly from their parents. These situations often require a quality, sterile breast pump to help build and maintain a robust milk supply.

Mamas for Mamas is proud to partner with Nourish Consulting and Project Angel Pump for “The Angel Pump Program”,  a “pump it forward” community initiative. Project Angel Pump, a YYC born resource, provides a single electric breast pump to mamas in need within the Calgary community. Supporters can help this initiative by donating directly to this program and helping a mama in need receive a pump. 
 
Any mamas from our community can connect with our team via calgary@mamasformamas.org to enroll in the program and receive a breast pump that best suits them!

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.
