Every child deserves to grow up in a loving, stable, and healthy family environment. At Monica Place, this belief is the core of why we do the work that we do. A newborn child does not know how old their parents are. What they will know, and what they will always remember, is how they were cared for. We believe that with the right supports, services, and encouragement, participants are capable of being the parents their children need.
If you believe this too, then we encourage you to consider supporting our mission of empowering young parents.
As a registered charity, Monica Place relies on community support to provide our multi-faceted supports and services to the young people we serve. Gifts of time, money, and material goods help us meet the individual needs of each parent and provide them with the tools necessary to be the best parents they can be, at no cost to them.
Many of our young parents refer to Monica Place as the support system they never had, and to us, that speaks volumes. Parenthood is a journey and learning experience for all parents, but when a parent begins that journey without support, it can seem overwhelming… even impossible.
We want to be there to make those first steps easier for our young parents, and to support them as they navigate their way through to promising futures for themselves and for their children.
If you have the ability to see the potential in young parents, and see the value in creating promising futures for young families, we welcome you to get involved. Every helping hand is a new opportunity, and at Monica Place, a helping hand never goes unappreciated.
