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 to change the lives of people living in poverty in your Vancouver community through the power of work!
For EMBERS Staffing Solutions workers, a pair of work boots means much more than access to a job site. Work boots open the door to steady work opportunities, a regular paycheque, and a greater sense of self-worth.
This holiday season, join us in our 4th annual 100 Boot Challenge and help EMBERS Staffing Solutions workers get back on their feet and back to work.
