Youth Supported Living
Debra Chemrys, Program Support
Our homes are therapeutic. They're not group homes, they’re 2-bed resources. They're for youth who are perhaps transitioning out of foster care or are starting their semi-independent journey and just need some support. Each home is staffed 24/7 the staff in the homes act as mentors. They’re there to guide the kids. They’re there to listen. They’re there to build skills, to help problem solve, advocate, and help the kids reach their goals whatever they may be.
Youth Support Homes

Adult Supported Living
Danelle Kilber, Behavior Consultant
Our adult residential program or supported living program for individuals who have developmental disabilities really focuses on stabilization for the individuals who live in those programs. It helps people develop a sense of belonging, maintain the connections that are within their world, family, loved ones, the connections they have with the community, those social aspects.
Each and every individual or residential situation is very inclusive of the person, so every individual is going to have a different range or different set of needs and a different program that really follows them because no one person is the same.
Our Adult Support Homes
All referrals will come through Community Living BC Analyst; supported individuals contribute to shelter and support costs.
