Community Stabilization

Our Community Stabilization Program is a short-term placement that recognizes the importance of connection, promoting meaningful relationships, and working with a youth’s family and natural supports.

This program provides 24/7 therapeutic crisis service for youth (12-17), as well as a safe place for those experiencing homelessness, family crisis, placement breakdown or require temporary housing. Educational and employment support is available to assist youth in academics, employment or training programs. In addition to goal setting, solutions, conflict resolution and family/caregiver support, the Community Stabilization Program also offers reprieve – a place to examine previous behaviours, attitudes and coping strategies.
