The Cridge Young Parent Outreach Program
About Young Parent Outreach
Our Young Parent Outreach program is a dynamic resource providing services and support to young pregnant women, young moms and dads, and their children in the Greater Victoria area. These services – provided by The Cridge Centre for the Family – are designed to give young pregnant women and young moms and dads the help and support network they need to have healthy babies and to be effective, successful parents. The purpose of this site is to provide resources for young parents and families in the Greater Victoria area. The site contains informative articles, blog postings and video clips on topics ranging from teen pregnancy, parenting newborns to general advice on how to baby proof your house. We’ve also included a list of helpful online links to other important young parenting and pregnancy resources.
We work with our clients as advocates and support them within the context of the ministry mandates. Our goal is to support families in becoming healthy, autonomous and thrive within our community.
Educational opportunities are within our community but can be confusing to navigate. Our outreach worker can help with finding programs of interest, helping with enrolment, finding childcare and more.
Safe, stable and affordable housing is the key to supporting young families as they move forward. We can help find, secure and maintain housing for young mothers and their children in our community.
The Cridge Young Parent Outreach Program offers support, mentoring and advocacy to young parents as they endeavor to have healthy babies, develop their parenting skills, and pursue their educational and employment goals.
