Marymound operates five community group homes in Winnipeg, each offering a welcoming and nurturing environment for four to six young people. Emphasis is placed on promoting healthy, age-appropriate activities and interaction, while still providing a therapeutic milieu, including counseling, support and psychiatric consultation. Access to Marymound Group Homes is by referral only. Contact us at 204-338-7971 for information.
The young people who come to Marymound are often struggling to overcome multiple challenges including abuse, family breakdown, addiction, mental health issues and learning disabilities. Marymound staff members are experienced and skilled at working with young people with high needs requiring an exceptional level of care.
Marymound strives to offer the best chance for success to young people needing treatment-based care. With our wide range of placement options, youth can move on to other Marymound programs as their development progresses.
Education is a Priority
The goal for all young people residing in Marymound group homes is to attend school – either the school in their community or at Marymound School. All transportation arrangements are looked after by the group home staff.
Marymound knows how important family can be in the lives of young people in care. Family connections are maintained through regular contact including visits home for weekends and holidays whenever possible. Supportive family counseling is available when it is needed.
Spiritual and Cultural Care
All youth in Marymound’s care have access to the Indigenous Cultural Program.
