Individual support and referrals:  Our team offers one on one time via phone and in person, as well as occasional accompaniments to government agencies and court. Whether mothers need support with surviving abuse, housing, children with special needs or integration challenges, finding work or returning to school, our team is there with a warm welcome and lists of resources.

The Parenting Program is a support-group that meets twice a week for mothers with children between the age of 0 to 5 years old.

-Exercise, workout and dance

-Health and wellbeing

-Housing and rental rights and obligations

-Security: personal, internet, fraud & environmental

-Implementing French in an Allophone setting

-Strengthening families and relationships through communication

-Job opportunities or going back to school

Every donation to Women on the Rise has a direct impact on women and their families in NDG.  Funds will help us expand the breadth and depth of our core services, cover expenses of special events and outings, and enable us to bring in skilled professionals as needed for individual support and group activities.  Every donation of $5, $20, or $100 helps cover our bottom line and affords us the opportunity to invest deeper in our community.  



Do you have a project that you would like to reach a diverse range of women in NDG?  We are always happy to partner with inspiring organisations and individuals to make an impact!

Please contact our development agent at to share your ideas.  Thank you!
