Join us as a monthly donor today and support a mother and her baby here in Winnipeg. With your donation of any amount you can be a part of a change.

Our goal is to open our doors to these women and their babies in the Spring of 2023. In order to meet this goal, we are hosting a Home for Good gala on November 5, 2022.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the purchase or rental of a facility to house this program.

Home for Good is a formal event with a special performance by Monica Huisman, as well as a silent auction.

Our Mission

To provide a safe healing home to educate, equip and embolden mothers in need through housing, counseling, resources and the gospel in a Christian community.

Who are we?

Selah Place is a Reformed Winnipeg Manitoba mission. We are an organization that will offer assistance to struggling pregnant or postpartum young women, 18-25, who’ve been discharged out of CFS (Child and Family Services) care and need support. 

Women will receive transitional housing and life skill training as well as Christian counseling and other resources. Selah Place will be different than others as our Christian communities will come alongside, volunteer, and make lasting relationships with the women. 

This creates the opportunity for them to have a Christian church community as well as hear the gospel through a peer-to-peer relationship.

We need to stop the biological breakdown of families. CFS is working with the children, but let’s take a step back further and start by supporting the mothers in a way that they are not currently being helped. We need to foster the mothers and prevent them from having their kids taken by helping them be successful parents to their kids. 

Ways to help

We are unable to accept clothing and baby item donations.

If you’d like to volunteer sign up for our newsletter to hear when we’ll be putting a call out for volunteers.

Would you like to support selah Place?

Since October 2021 we’ve been pursuing the opening, with a goal of 2023.

The intention for Selah Place is derived from the Hebrew word, to pause, to lift up and to praise.

The University of Manitoba did a study and 33% of children in care graduated high school compared to 89% of children who’ve never come in contact with CFS.
