Helping Hands

Whether you've just given birth, have just moved into the area, or find yourself overwhelmed and/or going through a difficult time, our group provides a network of support and reaches out in helpful ways. We are proud of the strong sense of community we offer to each other.

Who do we help?

  • Moms who have suffered an unfortunate personal loss.

  • Moms who become ill.

  • Moms who have a sick child.

  • Moms who are having any kind of difficult time, extreme or not.

  • Each time one of our moms gives birth, we arrange to have meals delivered to them. Sometimes they need the meals right after they come home and sometimes it is more helpful to have them provided later.

How the program works

If you are a mom who could use some support, contact our Helping Hands Coordinator and talk about your situation and how we can best help. You can say as little or as much about your situation as you want. Anything said will be held in the strictest of confidence. The Coordinator will organize the volunteers and set things in motion.

If you know someone in Moms Group who could use some support and have either talked to them about Helping Hands or know they would accept and appreciate some support, contact the Helping Hands Coordinator at

I moved to North Toronto just before having my second child and did not know anyone in the community. I joined the group and have since made some great relationships. I feel so fortunate to be part of a group that supports each other.
