Becoming a parent at a young age is life changing, to say the least. Family Service Regina’s Teen Parent Program offers support and guidance to young parents.
We work in partnership with Shirley Schneider Support Centre (located at Balfour Collegiate), an in-school program for pregnant and parenting teens. Our Teen Parent Workers are present daily to walk beside young families, responding to the needs of the moment. It’s a huge goal to graduate high school while adjusting to parenting and a pile of other new adult responsibilities. With support, it happens!
When young families are mentored and equipped during the early stage, the impact goes on and on. Success in school, getting started on the right foot with positive parenting, and establishing stable homes — all of this pays dividends for decades for young parents and for their children.
