What's New

British Columbia has the highest child poverty rate in Canada, with one in five children considered statistically poor, says a report that calls for quick action to alleviate a worsening situation in the province.

The report by the child and youth advocacy group First Call said B.C.'s child poverty rate is 18.6 per cent compared to the national rate of 13.3 per cent. Manitoba's rate, the second-highest in the country, stands at 17.3 per cent.

This is a reality our families know all too well. You're donations help us provide safe affordable housing for low-income families in the downtown eastside. Every little bit helps. If you're able to become a monthly donor, even a small regular contribution allows us to plan ahead in meeting the needs of our tenants. Visit the Support Us page to learn more.

What We're Up To

Thanks to Home Depot for our courtyard improvement grant! We'll be working hard over the next couple weeks to gussy up our space before all the kiddies are off for the summer. Battening down the hatches, so to speak.
