Mamas for Mamas is a National registered charity that supports low income families, helping them to overcome the impact of poverty and a lack of basic resources. We address issues around food insecurity and basic human requirements such as shelter and clothing, homelessness, mental health challenges, child welfare concerns and any other barriers that prevent these families from ending the cycle of poverty and related trauma. We have connected with over 16,000 families in the Okanagan region, 50,000 across Canada and the number is steadily growing. As a result, we’ve observed an increase in a quiet desperation behind so many of these Mamas’ struggles to provide for their families. Despite their best efforts the cost of living is rapidly increasing, and these families are falling short and further behind. The scales continue to tip against the wellbeing of the working poor and Mamas for Mamas is dedicated to filling these gaps in relief to support these families who would otherwise go without. We offer access to the Karma Market as part of our Mamas At-Risk program which provides free clothing and necessaries to mothers, children and caregivers struggling with poverty and unable to provide clothing for their family members. It is our policy that we never resell items donated to the organization, and we strictly enforce a redistribution policy that prohibits mamas to sell anything received from the Karma Market.
It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a strong community to help us build that village. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with you to fill the gaps in poverty relief services in our local community and would be pleased to offer a tax receipt for the donations made. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments or concerns.
