Youth Group Home
The vision of this group home is to provide a residential program where youth feel safe, stable and have the ability to achieve their personal goals. We work to treat youth with dignity, respect, fairness, courtesy and compassion in a non-judgmental way. We hope that through empowerment, youth can achieve their goals.
Provides temporary (3-6 months) structured living accommodations for 6 co-ed youth (13-18 years of age) who have been referred by the Ministry of Children and Family Development or Fraser Valley Aboriginal Child and Family Services (FVACFS).
- Many of our resident youth have experienced various forms of trauma. Research has shown that a rocking motion helps individuals self-regulate their emotions. With that in mind, we used funds raised in the Home Depot Orange Door Campaign to build a glider swing to help youth self-regulate.
- Youth need safety and stability which is the group home’s primary goal. Hopefully after that is achieved they can move on to more permanent housing.
- Many of our youth are not in the care of their parents and a social worker is their legal guardian.
- We are a co-ed receiving and assessment home for youth between the ages of 13-18.
