Homeward Bound is removing the barriers between single mothers and a new career

Homeward Bound Peterborough helps single mothers overcome their most common causes of homelessness: limited access to housing, childcare, and education. Based on a program in Toronto that has helped hundreds, the Peterborough program is serving its first cohort of seven families by providing them with affordable apartments, childcare, free college tuition, job readiness programs, and other services. The admissions criteria are strict, because even with the help it's hard to juggle a family and school while parenting alone.
