WE CAN HELP
If you are pregnant or have a child and are 19 years old or younger, we are here to help.
All our services and programs are free of charge.
And you can always feel comfortable talking with our staff and volunteers. We will honour the choices you make about your own sexual health and your pregnancy options and we will respect your confidentiality.
Getting started is easy. Once you call to make an appointment, we will arrange for you to meet with a trained counsellor. She will talk to you about our services and give you a tour of our centre.
The intake appointment is a chance for you to ask questions and for us to find out about your unique needs and discuss your thoughts and feelings around your pregnancy.
You will be assigned a counsellor who can help connect you with services and programs offered at Jessie’s as well as other outside resources.
Every young woman accessing Jessie’s services is assigned a counsellor who is available to her for personal counselling, information and advocacy. Learn more…
