Rose of Sharon provides support and education to prenatal and parenting women under the age of 25 across York Region. By joining the Run for the Rose team on Sunday October 16, 2011, you are helping us empower young women to create opportunities for themselves and their children in the community.
Raising pledges for Rose of Sharon is imperative to maintain the array of services/programs we offer to pregnant teens, young mothers and their children. Areas we need ongoing support in are transportation, food vouchers and baby equipment. In 2010, we provided services to over 400 families through prenatal and postnatal parenting programs, counselling services, child care, secondary education and access to emergency resources.
