Cause We Care is committed to bridging the gap between those with needs, and those who can help meet those needs.

We are women advocating for women.

Cause We Care Foundation is a Vancouver-based registered charity, founded to assist local single mothers and their children in need.  Since 2007 and in concert with our volunteer base and generous donors, we assist families in need in the Metro Vancouver area through a variety of outreach and funding initiatives.

We Believe
•    in strengthening the capacity for self-help
•    in creating opportunities for development and growth
•    in providing relief and essential supplies for some of life’s basic needs

We look to a mother and child’s potential future:  one that provides a more fulfilling, empowered and independent life through opportunities for successful positive change.

Our Vision

To make a difference in the lives of single mothers and children in need.

Why We Started

We were born of a thirst for change. Cause We Care officially launched in May 2007, soon after a group of women volunteered at the Downtown Vancouver Eastside Women’s Centre’s annual Holiday lunch. We served more than 500 less-fortunate women and their children a memorable hot meal, and were touched by the challenges faced by those women and children. We were inspired to organize, and to develop concrete, effective ways to provide a ‘hand up’ through targeted outreach initiatives.

Cause We Care was founded by Andrea Thomas Hill. With her commitment to giving back to the community – and having become a new mother herself – Andrea was particularly drawn to the single women and children living within the harsh realities of Vancouver’s downtown Eastside. Armed with a strong desire to enable positive change in these women’s lives, Andrea founded Cause We Care Foundation.
