Maxxine Wright Community Health Centre
Who do we support?
The Maxxine Wright Community Health Centre supports women who are pregnant or who have very young children at the time of intake who are also impacted by substance use and/ or violence and abuse. Women do not need to have their children in their care to receive support provided there is an ongoing relationship with the child.
Note: our current mandate is women who are pregnant or have a child under six months old at the time of intake. Once a woman has completed intake, we can potentially work with her up to her youngest child turns 4 years old.
