Tomorrow is the Giving Something Back day. As we said before EC Vancouver staff will be participating in three different projects . Today, would like to let you know more about our projects at YWCA.
The first one is the Crabtree Early Learning and Care Centre which is a transitional housing for parents and pregnant women who are overcoming substance abuse issues. Pregnant women can stay until their baby is nine months old, and mothers trying to regain custody of their children can stay for up to 18 months. They also offer short-term care for children ages six weeks to six years in the Downtown Eastside allowing parents the opportunity to attend appointments, court appearances or have a much-needed mental health break from their children. Not only are the children cared for in a safe environment, but they learn valuable life skills such as problem solving, language and social aptitude.
Our EC team will get together and put all energy into this project. We will be helping out with cleaning and gardening on site.
