Housing for Moms

Helping Moms and Babies Thrive

Aunt Leah’s Thresholds program provides supported housing and services for new moms to help them maintain custody of their children. Moms live in a safe, caring home environment where they can learn how to care for their baby with the guidance of our family support workers.

Thresholds is for women who are about to give birth or who have just given birth and:

  • Are at risk of experiencing homelessness
  • Are at risk of losing custody of their children
  • Have no current criminal involvement
  • Are in recovery and maintaining a substance free life

Program participants are connected with community programs and resources as well as Aunt Leah’s workshops. These include:

    • Post-natal support
    • Life skills assessment – helping Moms with their preparedness to successfully parent and live independently with their babies
    • Aboriginal Infant Development Program (AIDP)
    • Cultural teachings
    • Scheduled weekly programming that encourages mom and baby bonding and develops parenting skills

If you are a mom with young children in need of housing support, please apply here.

    List yourself first, then list all other persons in your household who will be living with you. Use your estimated due date for baby's birthdate if you are pregnant.

    For more information, please call 604-525-1204 ext 230 to speak to our Manager of Supportive Housing Programs.
