Terra relies on volunteers, financial and in-kind donations to offer services and support our teen parents.
At Terra, our specialized team tailors programs and services to meet the needs of each teen parent. Always safe, never judgemental. Learn more about what we have to offer our young families.
If you are a young parent or are about to become one and are interested in what Terra has to offer you, you are in the right place. Our Starting Point Support Worker acts as a first point of contact for all young moms and dads looking for support and information.
At Terra, we know every young parent’s experience is unique, so we strive to meet your individual needs.
Our Starting Point worker Lisa will connect you with valuable resources, help you through the first steps and make sure you receive the best information and support throughout your journey. Is housing a major concern for you? Lisa can tell you about Terra’s housing partnerships. Are you looking to complete your high school education? She can tell you about Braemar School. Are you interested in attending pre-natal classes? She can help you register.
Lisa will also connect you with one of our Family Outreach workers. Your outreach worker will meet you regularly at your home, at school or in the community, and will help you reach your goals. Sometimes there’s a waiting period until you can connect with an outreach worker, so Lisa is available to answer calls and meet with you. You’ll always have someone to talk to and rely on.
Starting Point is located at Terra’s downtown office. Young moms, young dads, family members and staff from community organizations can make an appointment with Lisa to learn about our programs and services.
If you are a young parent or are about to become one, we encourage you to contact Lisa by email or by phone at 780-428-3772.
Terra's Starting Point Worker not only did my intake, but went out of her way after I was connected to congratulate me on my successes.
It took me two months to reach out to Terra. I was so scared. I'm so very happy I made the call, Terra & Braemar changed my life for the better!
We’re located at 9930 106 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta. We are open 8:30-4:30 Mon-Fri.
