About Mamas For Mamas
Mamas for Mamas is a national charitable organization that supports mothers and caregivers in crisis; we provide digital and community based support to individuals and families facing various poverty related struggles. Our mission is to change the landscape of poverty through innovative approaches to financial barriers faced by struggling families. We envision a future where no Mama or child is left behind. The most recent statistics from Citizens for Public Justice reports that a staggering 5.8 million people in Canada (or 16.8%) live in poverty (https://cpj.ca/poverty-trends-2018/). We are dedicated to giving a hand up not just a hand out to those struggling by providing basic necessities and access to resources to help alleviate their situation long term. We are actively engaging with multiple levels of government and non-profit agencies; together we are working to change the systems that contribute to the vicious cycle of poverty, mental health issues, housing and food insecurity and have recently expanded digitally across Canada .

We provide a space where our Mamas and their kids feel safe and comfortable when they come in for poverty relief support. We refer to any and all existing community programs when available and fill the gaps in service when the need is higher than the resources available. Unfortunately, this is often the case as evidenced by the need for our rapid program development. At the head office in Kelowna, BC we offer a beautiful Karma Market where struggling families can access anything they need at no cost; the only currency we request is kindness to your fellow neighbour. In our free store, we provide clothing, shoes, seasonal wear and through our intake process Mamas can also access formula, diapers, baby furniture and gear. We also offer individualized help navigating the available resources for food security, affordable housing, education and access to our in-house mental health team where counselling is available at no cost for those who qualify. Community based sharing economies are available for families not in Kelowna , with a resource coordinator available for preventative and intervention based poverty relief. 

It's hard enough being a parent without the stress of clothing or food insecurity, lack of appropriate mental health care and everything else that can easily fall through the cracks in our busy society. Mamas for Mamas is there for those parents who need help navigating eligible resources, applying for social supports, and getting direct intake support while joining this Mamas community that truly looks after each other (https://cpj.ca/poverty-trends-2018/).
