Postnatal Residential Housing Program
Mothers graduating from the prenatal residence (normally about six months after baby arrives) move on to the Postnatal Transitional Housing program, where mom, aged 13-21 and baby 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 ensure:
• mom is coping
• the attachment process is going well
• baby is thriving
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
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.
