Homes

Our unique programs and locations

Our homes employ a highly structured supportive environment that offer limit setting and experienced staff to manage necessary interventions. Life Skills programming, included in the house schedule, aim to support youth in the development of prosocial behaviour and basic life skills to allow them to function independently.

Our treatment programs encourages children to learn from their immediate experience with those in the residence as well as those in the community. This kind of information is useful in allowing residents to understand how they affect others and how others affect them. In this way, the residents are able to:

  • Take responsibility for their behaviour(s);
  • Make realistic choices and engage in problem-solving behaviour;
  • Make constructive changes in behaviours;
  • Critique and change belief systems that previously encouraged destructive behaviour;
  • Work collaboratively with others;
  • Accept support and counselling for issues from their pasts that may be contributing to their current behaviour(s).
