Group Name: Jean Tweed Centre – Mom & Kids Too (MK2) Program
Description: Since its founding, the Centre has evolved and grown to become a leading community-based substance abuse and problem gambling agency for women in Ontario. The Centre offers a wide range of services including residential and day programming; two day programs now exist – one 3 weeks and one 7 weeks for mothers with young children. They also offer out-patient programs including family and trauma counseling, and outreach services in various locations across the city for pregnant and parenting women. Most recently, they have added a second outreach service to women who have mental health and substance use problems as well as involvement in the criminal justice system.
Are you pregnant? Are you parenting young children (6 years and under)? Is your substance use a concern? Another option you may want to consider is our Mom & Kids Too (MK2) program. MK2 is offered three days a week, for seven weeks. It also starts later and ends earlier than most day programs and includes participation in:
- small groups with other mothers focusing on effective parenting
- attachment activities with your child in our child development centre
- larger integrated workshops with women from the day/residential program.
Women with children in care, who plan to parent in the near future, may also find this program helpful.
