CIWA Partnership:  Adopt-a-Family Program - Lean in Canada

For over two decades, Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association’s Adopt-a-Family Program has been a beacon of hope and lifeline for countless immigrant and refugee women and their children. These resilient women often receive little to no income support, facing unique challenges such as caring for young children, language barriers, access to meaningful employment, social isolation, and more.

In partnership with CIWA’s Adopt-a-Family program, the Lean In Calgary Network is pleased to support immigrant women and families in need through the Holiday season to help make a real difference in the lives of more than 100 families in our community. Without our help, these families may go without basic necessities or holiday gifts.

Your support towards this program can:

  • Provide Essentials: Your donation helps us buy food and supplies, offering vital assistance to families facing financial hardship.
  • Spread Joy: Your generosity ensures every child in these families receives a gift, making their holiday season brighter.
  • Restore Dignity: Your kindness sends a message of inclusion and empathy, reminding these families that they are not alone.
  • Foster Resilience: Your support empowers local immigrant women to face their challenges with renewed strength and hope.

The Lean In Calgary Network invites you to be a part of this meaningful initiative and help us make this holiday season brighter for those who could use a little extra support. Your generosity will make a profound difference in the lives of many.
