About YWCA Cause We Care House
Single mothers and their children are often described as the invisible homeless because a single mother will do almost anything to keep her children from living on the streets.
While not all single mothers are poor, a larger percentage lives below the poverty line than any other demographic. When a mother struggles with poverty, her children feel it most. Lengthy periods without adequate food, suitable stimulation, necessary medical interventions or safe, stable housing can have immediate and lasting health and developmental consequences that forever limit those children’s ability to realize their full potential.
YWCA Cause We Care House will provide safe and affordable housing as well as integrated services to help women achieve economic independence because we know this is the most effective way to help their children.
Located at 720-730 East Hastings Street, Cause We Care House will house:
Strathcona’s only full-service library
21 units of supportive subsidized housing
2,600 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor program, space
Resident amenity room
Children’s play space
And on-site medical services.
