Regina's Place is home to young moms and their children. Mothers aged 21 and younger, who are confronted with enormous responsibilities as they raise their babies, live in one of 15 fully furnished, subsidized transitional housing apartments.
Originally opened as Angela's Place, it was renamed Regina's Place in June 2017 as a tribute to the memory of the late Sister Regina Brunelle.
Residents of Regina's Place receive on-site support and programming including life skills, goal setting and child development training designed to break barriers for multiple generations.
Young moms at Regina's Place learn to provide a better life for their family and discover faith in themselves. Supportive housing allows young moms to have a safe and stable living environment, while benefiting from support services that improve long-term outcomes for both mother and child, such as job attainment and retention, academic success, improved parenting skills and healthy child development.
In addition to the alternative education school, tenants attend programs, based on their personal needs and strengths. These programs help young moms to continue to build life skills and increase parenting abilities.
