    Description

In September 1992, Saint Monica House officially opened Monica-Ainslie Place, a sixteen unit, two bed room, apartment housing complex and resource centre for young, single mothers and their babies in Cambridge. The construction of Monica-Ainslie Place and Monica Resource Centre enabled Saint Monica House to once again expand essential services to a high risk young mother and her child.  This longer term transitional housing made it possible for young mothers to live in a safe environment, while having access to on-site counseling and support services, while progressing toward fully independent living.
Maternity Homes have been a part of the social service delivery system since in the 1900’s and they represent a unique service to the community.  There are several homes throughout Ontario which form the “Young Parent Resources of Ontario”, which Saint Monica House actively participates in as a member in this Association.
Saint Monica House began legislatively under the Province of Ontario Charitable Institutions Act.  This arrangement was changed in 1979 to the Children’s Institutions Act, and again in 1985 to the Child and Family Services Act.  Today, Saint Monica House is licensed under the latter and is funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services, as well as by church sponsorships and private donations.
