Monica Place Celebrates 50 Years of Support in our Community

Monica Place Celebrates 50 Years of Support in our Community
Supporting Lives Two at a Time for 50 Years

On May 26, 1968, Saint Monica House opened its doors to pregnant and parenting youth. 50 years later the agency, now known as Monica Place, is still providing supports and services to pregnant and parenting youth in the same location at 231 Herbert Street, Waterloo. Opened as a bicentennial project by the Anglican Diocese of Huron and then referred to as a Maternity home the agency has provided supports to over six thousand young parents and their children in the past 50 years.

To celebrate this milestone the community is invited to an Open House of Friday, May 25 between 2-7 pm. We invite you to tour our beautiful facility, see and hear stories and artwork shared by those touched by Monica Place Past and Present, learn about Pregnancy and Parenting Over the Last 50 Years and enjoy Delicious Refreshments.
