Marillac Place resolves to give at-risk mothers the tools to become effective parents and self-supporting, responsible members of the community by offering safe affordable accommodation, with basic life skill training, childcare guidance and educational opportunities. We provide chances for brighter futures to young mother-led families, helping them to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
About MARILLAC PLACE
Marillac Place operates a 10 bedroom residential facility for single prenatal & postnatal women aged 16-25. We are one of the few residences that can provide extended support to postnatal women. Many of the women we serve may not have had the chance to parent if it were not for the quality support and guidance we provide.
All residents are immersed in continuing their education or full-time life skills programs within the community. Residents are also expected to participate in the daily household routines and responsibilities on-site. We provide a variety of Residential programming and training to benefit both our in-house and outreach clients. We are pleased that our clients have been receptive to our support and training and have been able to take away from it tools that will undoubtedly last a lifetime.
It is our ultimate goal to provide our mother-led families with opportunities for brighter futures by providing them with skills necessary to live independently.
