Housing Support Services for Teen Parents
Young parents face many challenges in securing safe and affordable housing. Many have not lived independently, lack references, are under age and face discrimination from landlords. Terra provides supportive housing options to teen parents that help develop independent living skills, build and strengthen community and connect tenants to community resources.
Hope Terrace is a safe and affordable supportive housing program located in North East Edmonton. It is a 13-suite apartment building that offers transitional housing (up to 3 years) to teen parents and their children. A full time Family Housing Worker is on site at Hope Terrace to provide tenants with one-on-one support, focused goal planning, group programming and access to community resources. Hope Terrace is part of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program in partnership with Edmonton Police Services and is an alcohol and drug free building.
A partnership with Capital Region Housing, Housing Works is a new employment and training program available to Teen Parents that currently reside in Capital Region Housing Corporation Community Housing. Our goal is to support teen parents in setting goals, overcoming barriers to employment and education and planning for the future.
