Last year, 58 women were turned away from Burnaby Family Life's Pregnancy Outreach Program because there wasn't enough funding. Please help us make sure that all babies in Burnaby get the healthy start they need ...

Young, homeless and suffering from an abusive relationship, Erika (not pictured) didn’t know what to do when she found out she was pregnant. Lacking support or a steady income she needed help to take care of herself and her baby. Erika joined the Pregnancy Outreach Program with Burnaby Family Life. Erika had a safe place to go and a new family to take care of her. Because of this, Erika’s baby boy was born healthy and strong.

Women like Erika, in your community need your help. Struggling to make ends meet, find steady jobs and in abusive relationships, the women of our pregnancy outreach program are some of the most vulnerable in our community. We are raising funds to help the over 50 at-risk pregnant women on our wait-list to deliver healthy babies and continue to care for them.

This holiday season, give the gift of diapers, baby formula, nutritious foods and more to those who need help in your community. Any gift helps. You can help create a better future for these women and their babies. Please give today.

Every year, the pregnancy outreach program helps at-risk women give birth to healthy babies. Our program focuses on being a safe place for women with multiple barriers to come and get the information and support that they need to deliver and raise healthy babies. Our clients face multiple barriers such as: Lack of english skills, lack of literacy, low incomes, social isolation, depression, homelessness, food security and varying situation of abuse. By improving mother and infant health and increasing the social networks of these women, we believe that we can empower these women to reach their full potential.
