Buying a Christmas tree can help provide housing for homeless foster youth, mothers and babies. Aunt Leah’s Christmas Tree Lots are now open for its 25th anniversary season in 6 locations around Metro Vancouver. These lots are a major annual fundraiser for Aunt Leah’s Place, with 100% of profits from the sale of the trees going to provide housing for moms and babies and youth aging out of foster care.
About Aunt Leah’s
It is estimated that half of BC foster youth will experience homelessness. Aunt Leah’s unique approach involves providing family-like support that includes housing, financial help, life skills and emotional care. This model has been shown stop the cycle of homelessness and, in the case of young moms, can prevent their children from going back into the foster care system.
