Offering Hope and Self Sufficiency

Donate to EMBERS



When you donate to EMBERS, you help combat poverty through the power of work.

Everyone deserves an opportunity to earn an income and live a productive life. Your donation can help us provide people in Vancouver who have suffered setbacks, or who are starting over in life, with the critical support and training they need to reach the goal of self-sufficiency. Through your charity donations to EMBERS, you are giving people a hand-up to create a better future for themselves and their families. Make a one-time donation today or sign up as a monthly donor to change the lives of people living in poverty in your Vancouver community.
