A nurturing home, supporting healthy pregnancy and positive parenting.

The Kairos Maternity Home is for pregnant teens and young women in Brandon and surrounding Western Manitoba area.

If you are single, pregnant and lacking support or facing homelessness, consider the nurturing environment at the Kairos Maternity Home. Whether you decide to parent or adopt we will help you along in your journey.

 

Our caring staff are here supporting your healthy pregnancy and positive parenting. Residents are given the support and opportunity to complete education goals and work towards establishing career plans and job opportunities. Attention will also be given to learning life skills and learning how to care for a child and prepare a safe, independent home.

Residents are able to stay for the duration of their pregnancy and six months following the birth of their baby. Assistance will be offered in seeking and finding housing; the goal is for each resident to find safe, permanent housing when she and her baby move out of the home. (Depending on circumstances mom and baby may need to stay longer than six months and this is determined on an individual basis). Mentoring continues after leaving the home.
