About Us

As a newly registered non-profit, the focus of The Nest Calgary is to shape community and contribute to successful life outcomes for female led households facing adversity. 

Unplanned pregnancies, relationship breakdowns, abuse; regardless of circumstance, too many young mothers find themselves struggling to raise our next generation on their own. By choosing to adopt the infamous adage that ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’, we are set on building a robust community to help nurture and develop the potential in young families today so to create better futures for tomorrow.  

Ours is a collective effort and holistic approach. At the hub of operations will be the shared home (nest!) that warmly welcomes in single mothers between 16-26 years old who wish to live in community while pursuing their goals. Here, barriers will be broken and optimism built through the strengthening of family, the pursuit of education and skills training, plus a long-term commitment fuelled by our belief that a true sense of value and belonging is how the seeds of success are first sown. 

To compliment these efforts and extend our reach, an inclusive online community for all young mothers in need. A safe place to share stories, discover valuable resources, plus opportunity to learn from the experiences of others.
