Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a family. Celebrating throughout the holiday season is especially difficult for families who are struggling to make ends meet.
SHARE Family & Community Services works hard to support families in need. Through the Caring Neighbour Program we offer a more personalized alternative for groups who wish to support a family from Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore or Belcarra. Families register for our program based on need, and basic family information is verified.
We do not further screen those families selected for a “Caring Neighbour” sponsorship. Personal, in-depth information about the families is not known. SHARE provides service in a non-judgmental, inclusive manner.
To assist you in providing for the sponsored family, please carefully read the guidelines outlined. If you have additional questions we would be happy to hear from you!
As you prepare to be matched with a family, consider your group’s resources (funds available will decide size of family) and if you have any preferences, for example, the age of the children or whether you would prefer a single or two parent family. If you advise us of these preferences early we are better able to accommodate your wishes.
Registration to be a sponsor ends Friday, November 30, 2018. Please contact the Caring Neighbour Program Assistant at (604) 931-2451, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsor registration can also be done on-line at www.sharesociety.ca and click on the Christmas link.
