The Youth Transition and Housing Program provides a variety of support services to youth who are currently involved with or are transitioning from child welfare. The program has been developed in response to advocacy by young people who have left the care of child welfare and who have faced challenges sourcing services and programs independently. The youth in transition and housing worker helps youth to develop and pursue their goals, and supports them to identify, access, and navigate adult service systems relevant to their specific needs. They support youth to connect to existing supports and resources within their communities including, housing supports, education resources, employment services and training, life skills training (e.g. financial management, household management), health and mental health services, and legal services.
If you have questions about the program or know someone who might be eligible, please call our office at 613-549-7850 and ask to speak to the Youth Transition and Housing Worker or complete our on-line referral form.
