Ampe Akweke Place
Ampe Akweke Place (Mothers and Babies Place)
Ampe Akweke Place is a program for young women, 14 to 23 years of age, who are having a baby. Ampe Akweke offers both outreach support and residential support, if the young women have nowhere suitable and safe to stay. Young women can stay in the safe house for up to three months.
Ampe Akweke works with the young women to ensure they have theirs, their unborn child or their babies health needs met. Ampe Akweke family support workers provide parenting education and support as well as case management to all young women accessing the program.
