Together We Can Make A Difference

Donors and volunteers give pregnant teens and young mothers opportunities for happiness and independence they deserve.

When you choose to become a donor or a volunteer, you help make Jessie’s a second home for young women facing parenthood without the necessary financial and emotional supports.

The much-needed funding we receive from donors and the time, energy, and talent volunteers bring to their roles make it possible for us to keep our doors open and our programs running at capacity.

It is amazing the impact a volunteer can have in the lives of our young mothers and their families.

Amazing Volunteers Needed

Labour Support

Experiencing pregnancy for the first time as a teenager can be daunting. Our labour support volunteers working in collaboration with Jessie’s staff help make the transition easier, offering support by accompanying participants to medical appointments and prenatal groups.

Parent-Child Centre Volunteers

Our volunteers provide a welcoming environment for prenatal women, young mothers and children using the Parent-Child Centre.

They work alongside Jessie’s staff to offer stimulating, quality care for infants and toddlers, including age appropriate programming as well as routine tasks such as feeding, changing diapers, and helping children get to sleep.

Kitchen Volunteers

Jessie’s provides nutritious meals for prenatal women, young mothers and their children. Our volunteers are on hand to help with food deliveries, cooking and clean up.
