St. Martin’s Manor is a residential home and support centre for pregnant and parenting young women.

  • Young women can live at the Manor during their pregnancies and for three months after they have given birth.

  • Those in residence and in day programs gain:

– access to regular medical care
– pre-natal classes to prepare for birth
– parenting classes after the baby is born
– an on-site classroom for high-school credits.

Outreach workers offer support to pregnant teens and teens caring for their babies by meeting with them in places where the teens can feel safe and comfortable, such as secondary schools, health clinics, youth shelter, drop-in centres and food banks.

Family home visitors work with teens who are pregnant or caring for their children through a Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program.
