After many years of searching, Terra found a home that would address the challenges (link challenges to about the project page) with our former building and allow the agency to do more for the families and greater community.  

Located in the mature, west-end community of Grovenor, our new home is 20,130 sq-ft, more than double the size of our former downtown building.  Terra’s new home, Terra West, will allow Terra to serve our families in ways we never have before.  

We moved in 2022 and have started a phased approach to renovations. We are thrilled to be slowly achieving our vision and creating an inclusive hub for teen parents, their children and the community.   

 The lower level will be a hub of participant activity and will be feature: 

  • A Learning Lab to support young parents in their employment and educational goals   
  • A Collective Kitchen and Food Pantry.  to address food security, promote nutritious eating and provide families a space to cook and enjoy a meal together    
  • Anexpanded donations centre for teen parents to access essentials for themselves and their children   
  • A Parent Lounge to support teen parents in building connections and addressing social isolation   
  • Cultural Supports Room to allow families to participate in culturally appropriate programming    

The main floor will feature:  

  • A purpose-built, inclusive, welcoming lobby will ensure all families feel welcome and safe when visiting Terra.   
  • Intentional child development programming space to support early literacy and development screening   
  • Dedicated office space for Terra’s mental health supports team. 

The second floor will house Terra’s program and administration teams and includes hoteling space for Terra staff from other locations and program partners. Terra West will also include multiple meeting rooms to encourage team building and collaboration, something not possible in our building.
