Can I Raise My Baby?


If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, we understand this is not an easy time for you. Your mind is likely spinning with questions like:

  • How can I raise a baby?
  • How can I get by financially?
  • What about school and work?
  • Where will I live?
  • Are there services in Toronto to help me?
  • What medical appointments need to be scheduled?
  • What about the child’s father, my parents, my friends?
  • I don’t feel able to parent, how can I contact a couple who is wanting to adopt a child?

We can assist you with community resource referrals (housing, adoption, medical, legal, educational, health, financial, etc.) and information that can help you in your decision. We also offer in-house resources such as prenatal education, various support and planning courses, as well as mentor support for moms.
