The Standards Program Trustmark is a mark of Imagine Canada used under licence by YWCA Metro Vancouver.

We launched STRIVE, a program to support youth-in-care ages 17-24 during another difficult transition – aging out of the foster care system. According to the Ministry of Children and Family Development’s (MCFD) Residential Review Project, BC youth may have had up to 10 foster care placements while in care. In addition to carrying possible emotional trauma from childhood, youth leaving care often lack close family and peer support networks and the life-skills to help them transition into adulthood. Once out of foster care, these youth have limited access to education, higher rates of unemployment and are more likely to suffer from poor mental health outcomes. With the generous support of MCFD, the YWCA Strive program provides basic life and employability-skills that help youth move successfully out of foster care and into their adult lives. YWCA Metro Vancouver has also been supporting youth through our after-school youth education programs for more than ten years. These programs offer Grade seven girls and boys the opportunity to develop valuable connections with peers, build leadership skills, give back to their communities and navigate through the difficult choices they face as they transition to high school. The intergenerational model provides youth with the tools they need to make positive choices in their lives by

teaching them about healthy relationships, body image and digital literacy. This year, we realized that, in order to fully reach young people, we needed to know how they are experiencing the issues we are advocating for, and so we created the YWCA Youth Advisory Council. It will help us lead our 3rd annual media literacy conference in 2015. We continue to support single mothers and their children in achieving long-term economic independence by providing seven safe, affordable housing communities across Metro Vancouver. We made great progress on the YWCA Cause We Care House, a new long-term housing community for single mothers and their children in the Downtown Eastside/Strathcona area. The project, a partnership with the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Public Library, will feature 21 units of housing and community programming space over the ̓ ʔmat ct Strathcona branch of the new nə́ca Vancouver Public Library and will open its doors in the Spring of 2016. We were also pleased to announce two new housing developments: YWCA Como Lake Mews in Coquitlam and the YWCA Fire Hall Project in South Vancouver. Both communities will provide much needed, safe, affordable housing for low-income single mothers and their families. At the YWCA, balance is a key part of everything we do. Our programs support women to achieve balance in their lives by removing barriers to economic independence like housing and child care. Organizationally, the YWCA’s commitment to work/life balance is much more than

just words on paper. It is a fundamental aspect of our culture, because we know the important part this plays in leading a balanced life. Clients, program participants, staff and volunteers are encouraged to use the YWCA Health + Fitness Centre and receive complimentary passes and memberships to make it accessible. On a broader level, we are proud to tell you that we were recognized as one of the Top Small and Medium-sized Businesses to Work For in Canada this year. Work/ life balance is also a key social issue – and addressing it requires a broad-based systemic response. In partnership with the UBC Human Early Learning Partnership, we raise awareness on family policy reforms that can enable families to reconcile the challenges to balance work and home. Integral to this is the development of a universal system for early learning and child care and the introduction of flexible working arrangements and extended parental leave that encourage men to play a larger role in the domestic sphere. As always, we would not be able to serve the communities we do without the ongoing dedication from our supporters. Without you, we could not provide valuable services and much needed supports for women and their families. Thank you for making 2014 another great year! Sincerely, Sherry Tryssenaar Janet Austin Chair CEO
