YWCA Crabtree Corner is a welcoming resource centre in the Downtown Eastside where women and families can find food programs, early childhood literacy and music groups, parenting and intergenerational support, FASD supports and other community building opportunities.

From transitional housing for expecting and new mothers with substance use issues to child care, parenting programs, a community kitchen and violence prevention, Crabtree meets women and families where they’re at, providing them with the support to move forward in life.

We need your help

For just $25, you can help low-income families in the Downtown Eastside start the day with a healthy meal in a community atmosphere.


Last year, we served more than 30,000 plates of fresh, nutritious food to women and families living in poverty.
