Aunt Leah’s Place is a registered charity that, for over twenty years, has been helping kids in foster care and teen moms achieve a better future by providing guidance, supported housing, job training and coaching in essential skills.
We believe that every young person deserves to feel safe, cared for and have a sense of belonging. This is not the experience for many teens in the foster care system. When they “age out” of government care at 19, they find themselves completely alone. Aunt Leah’s Place tries to fill that gap and to provide the loving support young people in care so desperately need and deserve.
Aunt Leah’s often provides the only thread of care and continuity for youth whose young lives have been marked by abuse, neglect, abandonment and multiple foster home placements.
Over the last two decades we have seen how support at this critical time can help these young people realize their possibilities and potential and become resilient, independent adults.
