Becoming parents and raising their children well

Homeless and at-risk youth already struggle to care for themselves. Having a child can make the situation even more precarious. Many factors can add to the anxiety: low income, single-parent status, housing instability, prostitution, a criminal record, a lack of education, ongoing exposure to violence, and more.

Four family services counsellors are available to work with young women from the early stages of their pregnancy onward. Their goal is to encourage them to take good care of themselves so they can do the same for their children.

This personalized program includes meetings and home visits to address specific risks and to show new parents how to create a stable family environment.
