The Maple Ridge Community Chest provides immediate and direct financial support for families and individuals facing a crisis. It involved one-time assistance to deal with a setback that could prove insurmountable. It helps keep the families and individuals from spiralling further into poverty. The Community Chest is a partnership between the Maple Ridge Community Foundation and the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Network. It is addressing important needs in our community:

  • preventing homelessness and evictions
  • addressing health needs
  • responding to mental health and crisis situations
  • preventing unemployment
  • providing household safety and stability

Applicants have ranged from families dealing with trauma to single parents needing assistance with something as small as a new pair of glasses. For one family, a new pair of boots for work made all the difference when the hardworking father faced being dismissed from his employment because he couldn’t afford a new pair of steel toed boots for work. The Community Chest, donations from you, his neighbours, was able to purchase the boots and keep that father employed.
