Rosalie Hall, with compassion and respect, assists young parents in need and their children to realize their potential through the provision of a wide range of community, residential, educational and child development services.
We envision young single women and men, their children and families leading healthy, meaningful and productive lives.
About ROSALIE HALL
Rosalie Hall has been serving Toronto communities since 1914. Over 2500 young mothers and children are served each year. We have evolved into an accredited children's mental health center and we have introduced services to young fathers.
In Canada, approximately 33,000 adolescents become pregnant each year. In Toronto alone, reported rates of childhood abuse in pregnant adolescents are as high as 52% for sexual abuse, 74% for physical abuse and 78% for emotional abuse.(Study by University of Toronto & The Hospital for Sick Kids in collaboration with Rosalie Hall.)
Rosalie Hall, together with our supporters, aim to break intergenerational cycles of abuse and poverty that afflict our young parents and often result in a mental illness.
Rosalie Hall provides its services with compassion and non-judgment. We hope to educate others on the great needs of these vulnerable young families. We recognize the harsh realities that instability, abuse, violence, and poverty have on fragile lives and provide our programs and services to address the complex lives of many of the young parents served.
