St. Mary’s Home has continuously and responsively served pregnant youth in Ottawa since 1933. Specialized residential and community support services are provided to marginalized young pregnant women (ages 12-29), young parents and their children. The approach is holistic, grounded in a strong commitment to strengthen and build upon the personal resilience of each individual. St. Mary’s Home is a not-for-profit charitable organization serving the Ottawa area and beyond.

The Centre is a ‘one-stop’ hub of services, health care and educational programs that is working annually with 450 youth and 300 children under the age of 6 years.   More than 20 organizations are partnered with St. Mary’s Home, making specialized services accessible on site.  A focus on a strength based and trauma informed approach along with support for positive parenting and developing healthy attachment in young children are cornerstones of the agency.
