The Young Mother’s program

Alicia and her son were a part of the Young Mothers program at Rossbrook House. Alicia’s son is her inspiration for wanting to build a brighter future, not only for her own child, but for other inner-city children.

Alicia says that she appreciated the connection with other moms and the activities. She said she was reminded about self-care, and that when she took care of herself, she was able to be a better mom!

We are pleased to have been an important part of Alicia’s past and wish her a bright future!

2022 Scholarship

In the fall of 2022, Alicia enrolled in the Carpentry Training Program with Clan Mothers Healing Village. The courses covered in this program will be certified with Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology.

Alicia’s goal is to work with a newly created Clan Mothers Carpentry Crew to create housing in the community and to inspire other young women to work in skilled trades.

We are pleased to award Alicia a Henderson Scholarship.
