Elizabeth House – The Caring Continues
Elizabeth House is a private rehabilitation centre that offers a continuum of intensive intervention and specialized support services to parents, particularly young mothers and mothers-to-be, experiencing serious difficulties adjusting to pregnancy or in their parenting role. We work to optimize the emotional and physical development of our co-clients – the parents and their young children – and to foster the development of a permanent parenting plan for each child. Our approach to treatment is relationship based, focused on the strengths of the individual. We work with the parents in our residential, external and educational programs, in supported independent living settings and in the community. We serve the English speaking community of Quebec
Our mission is to positively impact the lives of young children whose parents require intensive support and intervention to improve their capacity to parent.
Elizabeth House offers both residential and external programs, including a high school for pregnant teens and new mothers.
In all of our programs we offer:
- Pre-natal support
- Parenting skills
- Psycho-social support
- Independent living and life skills
- Counselling, advocacy, referral and accompaniment services
Our offices, residence and school are located in Montreal. We work with pregnant women and parents in our residential and educational programs, in supported independent living settings and in the community. We have been providing services and support to young mothers and pregnant women in difficulty since 1968.
Our residential programs are open to girls and women from across the province of Québec. Our external services are offered to moms-to-be and young parents living in the Greater Montreal area or within 100 kilometres.
Elizabeth House is part of the Québec’s Health and Social Services network and is the only resource of its kind mandated to serve the English-speaking population throughout Québec.
