Community Donation Program: Our organization receives donations both new and used from members of the community as well as through fundraisers. These donations include furniture, clothing for both mother and child, basic supplies for babies and children, gift cards and vouchers. Registered clients have access to these donations to give them tangible supplies that they would need to care for themselves and their children.
Individual Counselling: This program strives to improve relationships, reduce emotional distress and enhance personal well-being. Counsellors address issues that impact the quality of life for themselves and their child. There is no charge for this service.
Food Bank: This program allows single mothers access to our food closet on a monthly basis. We provide groceries, formula, diapers and wipes.
Mother and child Meet ups: We organize a monthly activity for both mother and child; this allows families to meet other families, socialize and have fun.
Referral to community resources: If our organization is unable to provide a particular service, our referral program will allow us to refer mothers to an organization within the community that can assist them.
Dental Care: We have enlisted the assistance of a professional dentist that offers free dental care to both mothers and children.
Legal Advice: We have enlisted a lawyer that specializes in family law that provide one free session to mothers that are in the process of custody, access and child support.
