Your year end gift could be a game-changer for a family in crisis

Pay it Forward Emergency Fund


After only a year in Canada, Raina found herself alone trying to get a divorce from an abusive husband, isolated from family, and with barely enough income to live on. Cultural brokering support at the MCHB-MFRS Family Support office helped connect her to community and to find a safe and appropriate place to live, but she needed to secure this hopeful home with funds she just didn't have.

MFRS's community-supported Emergency Fund helped.

Financial crisis is often a substantive barrier to the ability to move forward with better opportunities. Many times it is a first month rent that can be out of reach.

Your gift to the Emergency Fund ensures that vulnerable newcomers in a financial crisis have an option.
