Who We Are
Empowering young families
Rosalie Hall is an accredited client-centred infant and early childhood mental health organization which supports pregnant and parenting adolescents, aged 12-25, their children, and their families.
Rosalie Hall provides outreach, youth engagement, counselling and care and treatment services for children and youth with comprehensive supports for young parents and their children. Our counselling and therapy services include community counsellors and the Community Care and Treatment Team with outreach to Young Parent Centres across Toronto. With donors’ support, each young mom has access to prenatal and postnatal care, learns how to care for her baby, completes her education, and develops the skills needed to build a successful life and relationship with her baby.
Immediate response and brief services are available by phone each weekday.
Our Intensive services include a day treatment school program and live in treatment program for young parents and their infants. Young parents and their infants/children are supported through various programs by our Child Development Centre.
Who We Work With
If you’re a pregnant youth or young parent, Rosalie Hall is here for you. We work in collaboration with principals, guidance counsellors, teachers, hospitals, child welfare agencies, family physicians, youth outreach workers, and other youth support organizations.
Serving Toronto communities since 1914, Rosalie Hall has impacted countless lives. Founded by the Misericordia Sisters, Rosalie Hall developed an initiative to improve the suitable maternity and infant care of women and their children in Ontario.
Rosalie Cadron-Jette founded the Misericordia Sisters in Montreal in 1848. Since its foundation, the Misericordia Sisters mission has steadily grown, spreading its services in Canada, the United States, and South America.
Together, the Misericordia Sisters founded both the St. Mary's Infant Home and St. Mary’s Hospital in Toronto. To accommodate the growing need for their services, the hospital and home were moved to a larger property in Scarborough, now known as The Scarborough Hospital and Rosalie Hall.
