Finding the Good.
Marymound believes in the goodness within every young person who walks through its doors. While it may be difficult for some of them to recognize it, Marymound finds the good and uses it as the motivator that guides caring and compassionate staff to nurture and encourage all their children and youth.
Marymound is a place where youth and families learn to overcome the challenges of life’s adversities, and advance by gaining a sense of belonging and independence that enables them to realize their ultimate potential.
The children and youth of Marymound have an uphill climb, but together with the support of the community we can help them find the strength to reach their potential, one step at a time.
The Winnipeg Foundation magazine, WT (Working Together) created a story for their Spring Edition about Marymound’s Mental Health & Complex Needs Centre, including the transition home we are presently campaigning to raise funds. The Winnipeg Foundation already has donated $500,000 to the campaign, and this timely article will further benefit the cause as we bring the community together to support this integral need that helps teenage girls transition back to families and the community. Marymound story
