Strong caring families equals a strong caring community!
The Elizabeth House Foundation is a registered charity that helps some of the most vulnerable families in our community grow stronger.
Our mission is to support young pregnant women and families in difficulty. We do this by raising funds for Elizabeth House. Through its residential and external programs, Elizabeth House provides a full range of rehabilitation services to help young pregnant women adjust to pregnancy and to help young parents adapt to their role as parents. Visit the Elizabeth House web site.
We also support activities in the greater community that Elizabeth House is a part of through the provision of programs and services for young parents and their families.
Elizabeth House is a vital organization that provides safe and caring places where vulnerable young parents – especially young mothers – can care for their children while acquiring the confidence and skills to build strong, stable and loving families.
Your generosity helps us build strong caring families.
Please think of the young families who are struggling to succeed and to create better lives for their children; they need your help. Your donations make possible a number of programs and activities that support the growth and development of children and families. Please visit our “How You Can Help” page for a more complete list of programs and ways to help.
