Monica Place changes the lives of young women and their children. We offer education, child minding, nutrition, and emotional support across two locations – one in Cambridge and one in Waterloo. In Monica Place Waterloo we offer a residential program and a community-based program. We run a full time on site high school and allow women in our community to finish their education, and offer day care to support schooling. In Cambridge we offer sixteen, two-bedroom independent transitional apartments along with staffed programming to help support young women and their families’ transition to independence.
