What We Do

Aunt Leah’s helps prevent children in foster care from becoming homeless and vulnerable young mothers from losing custody of their children. To support them on their journey to self-sufficiency, we provide supported housing, job training, and coaching on essential life skills.

Why Join Aunt Leah’s

  • You’ll tackle unique challenges

    No two days are the same at Aunt Leah’s. From front line youth support work to improving our internal systems and communicating our initiatives you’ll play a role in furthering our mission and helping our organization to grow.  We know that you will enjoy our team’s entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.

  • Your professional development matters

    Learning is essential and we offer lots of opportunities to learn together.

  • You will feel like you are working with family

    Our participants and staff frequently comment that Aunt Leah’s feels like a family. We embrace individuality, diversity, and practice care for ourselves and each other.

  • You’ll become part of a greater mission

    The overrepresentation of BIPOC people in the child-welfare system in Canada is a result of years of colonial practices. We work to change this approach and reduce the number of kids who enter the foster care system. Aunt Leah’s uses research, data, and knowledge of lived experience to understand the challenges before us. We advocate and partner with other like minded organizations to build innovative solutions, raise awareness, and drive much needed systemic change.

  • We’ve got great leaders

    Our leadership team rolls their sleeves up,  lead by example,  recognize individual contributions and acknowledge each person’s unique strengths and challenges. Our combined experience, sense of humour, and development skills make it easy to get up and go to work every day.
