School Supplies for Kids

Since the program's inception in 1998, Na'amat Canada members in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Toronto work tirelessly each year to ensure thousands of children in domestic violence shelters have the supplies they need to succeed in school.

Forced to leave everything behind to start a new life, these children and their mothers, often battered and traumatized, typically arrive at these shelters with little more than the clothes on their backs.

Adding to their obvious distress is the anxiety of enrolling in a new school without so much as a simple pencil case or backpack.


The Na'amat School Supplies for Kids program, thanks to the generous support of donors, corporate sponsors and volunteers, fully equips these children with the tools to resume their education with renewed dignity and hope.

Mom's Bags - Toiletries for Women’s Shelters

Seeking a safe haven from domestic abuse is comparable to fleeing a raging fire. Lacking even the barest necessities, the smallest creature comforts, be it a hairbrush or tube of lipstick, is just one more indignity these women must suffer and endure. 

Through the unswerving support of our volunteers and generous donors, we solicit donations of these precious items, then assemble and distribute hundreds of toiletry kits with all the essentials to brighten these women's ruptured lives.
