A nurturing home supporting healthy pregnancy and positive parenting.
The Aerie is a two-phase maternity home program located in Red Deer, Alberta, for pregnant teens and young women, offering a nurturing home supporting a healthy pregnancy and positive parenting. The Aerie, which is staffed 24/7, can accommodate up to 11 women and their infants. Residents who meet the eligibility criteria enter Phase 1 of the program during their pregnancy and move into Phase 2 when their infant is approximately six months of age. Phase 2 residents who continue to meet program outcomes are invited to stay until their child is around two years of age. While in Phase 2, clients will continue pursuing education or employment while strengthening their parenting and life skills.
