Babies Need Love, Young Parents Do Too.
YOUNG PARENT PROGRAM
Family Service Regina aims to empower pregnant and parenting youth, whether they are balancing completing their high-school education or adjusting to being a young parent. We believe that ensuring adolescent parents receive adequate social, emotional, medical, and academic support is essential to both parent and baby’s future.
About the Shirley Schneider Support Centre
The Shirley Schneider Support Centre, located within Balfour Collegiate, is an alternative high school setting for pregnant and/or parenting women between the ages of 14 and 21. Our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where young women are provided with the academic and social supports necessary to obtain their high school education. We offer a Regular 24 Credit graduation route as well as an Adult 12 program, which are dependent on the individual needs of the student.
Obstacles and challenges can arise as our students navigate through the responsibilities of raising children while attending school, and we offer a multitude of supports to assist our students in these areas. Students have access to health supports: immunization, prenatal class, and a nurse practitioner. We also offer cost-free daycare, nutritious meals/snacks, parenting support, and Teen Parent Workers who assist students with any non-academic struggles they may face.
Students must complete an application for admission to the program. To obtain the registration forms or additional information, call the young parent workers at (306) 537-8952.
For more information call or email a young parent worker at (306) 537-8952 or email@example.com
THE YOUNG PARENT PROGRAM CAN HELP WITH:
Our young parent workers are here all summer!
Be sure to give them a call if you require support of any kind… information, crisis intervention, problem-solving, or just a supportive chat with a grown-up! If we don’t have what you need, we might be able to point you in the right direction.
We are so appreciative of any donations that we receive. We are always accepting donations for unopened formula, diapers, baby wipes, change tables, cribs and Pack N’ Plays.
At times we do call outs for furniture, clothing or Christmas gifts on our social media accounts. Please follow us so you can help us help our community! For donations that you need to drop off immediately, please go to Carmicheal Outreach.
