MOMS Canada was founded in 2009, as a Christ-centered non-profit organization with the purpose of supporting single moms and their children. Though motherhood is one of life’s greatest rewards, parenting alone can be very stressful. Mothers who do not have caring and consistent support in their lives often find themselves feeling isolated, discouraged and stuck. MOMS Canada was birthed in order to help these women not just survive but thrive.
Founder, Meda Weir saw this need and decided to start MOMS Canada based out of the Parkland area in Alberta with the goal of helping single mothers and their children. She modeled MOMS Canada after a charity in St. Paul Minnesota called M.O.M.S Minnesota, a charity that had already been helping single moms since the early 1980’s. Her dream was to see these families cared for and becoming successful. Since MOMS Canada has been founded it has been growing steadily and continues to help hundreds of women and their children every year.
The struggles that single moms face are not isolated to our regional area, so we do our best to be available to answer questions and offer assistance where possible. We get many calls for help from across the country. Our team supports them by simply listening or providing resource information to address their immediate needs.
As a team, it has been rewarding to see how many lives has been touched by the important work of MOMS Canada.
