The Wellness Works Program provides practical support to at-risk pregnant and parenting youth in addition to Case Management Support. The main components of programming are:
Outreach in Food Bank, Breakfast and Evening programs. We have committed to having one person in each program trained to
respond to crisis pregnancies.
Engage in the completion of contact forms and Case Management.
Encourage through the “Earn –while-you-learn” model of programming such as Stroller Fit and work programming and the use of
Parent Resource Room/Incentive Room. The Parent Resource Room offers the parents the opportunity to purchase practical supplies
needed for their families such as diapers, formula and wipes.
Equipping through the participation in Pregnancy Support Group and one to ones and appointment supports with students and staff.
This program is designed to ensure positive outcome through the critically formative years (from 0-6 years), as well as reducing the effects of poverty on young parents and their families. Wellness Works is a member of the Young Parent Network of Hamilton. The building of relationships in this program is an on-going process that requires intentional conversations in a social, or informal setting through sharing the needs of the youth or their children.
