Postnatal Transitional Housing Program

Type of Service

Support Within Housing - Mental Health

Program Description

The Postnatal Transitional Housing program provides support for young mothers, aged 16-21, and their babies. They live for up to 6 months in one of 10 partially furnished, self-contained apartment units. They pay modest rents, geared to their income. Residential counsellors and social workers ensure:
-mom is coping
-the attachment process is going well
-baby is thriving
-placement of the baby in the Early Learning program at the Centre.
As with the prenatal program, young moms continue to:
-attend school, work or focus on pre-employment activities
-learn positive and effective parenting skills
-learn how to budget and shop for a household
-increase knowledge about how to access community resources
-look for permanent housing
Upon successful completion of the first phase of the Postnatal Transitional Housing program, young moms may apply to move into one of 17 partially furnished, self-contained two-bedroom townhouses for six months giving them even greater independence but with continued support as they begin their transition back into the larger community.
