This program provides safe housing, mental health programs, and wraparound supports for homeless and under-housed adolescent mothers, aged 13-24, and their children. Our three locations offer a community of support including onsite high school, children’s programs, job training, life skills programs, and post-secondary support. The young moms leave here equipped to deal with the challenges they will experience as sole support young parents, be self-sufficient, and achieve their full potential. Many young moms have graduated from the Abiona Centre For Infant & Early Mental Health and gone on to attend post-secondary schooling, obtain competitive employment, and build stable lives for themselves and their families. This also affects the next generation as these young moms break the cycle of poverty and their children benefit from more stable lives as they grow up.
