The Co-Operative Housing Program provides safe and affordable housing to young people aged 16 – 24 who are ready for semi-independent living. This program assists you with living on your own with 2 or 3 other young people while working with a supportive and caring counsellor. Many of the young people who live in our co-op housing have graduated from the Transition Home Program. When you move in, you are paired with the Supportive Housing Counsellor who will work with you one-to-one to help you develop the life and social skills you will need before you move on to independent living. Your counsellor can help you explore your options and can also make referrals to Youthab’s housing, mental health and employment programs or to other community resources.
You will have the opportunity to meet other young people just like yourself. You will also have the opportunity to participate in individual and group workshops such as: healthy relationships, self-esteem, healthy lifestyle, conflict management, and money management.
Even though you are required to be involved in a day program (school or work) our activities go on and on. To name a few, we visit the YMCA, go on day trips, have a coffee house group, board game nights, rock band nights, karaoke nights, and movie nights. There is never a dull moment.
Our houses provide supportive residences for young people; therefore, we have guidelines to keep our houses safe and provide a healthy environment for everyone:
Smoking is permitted outside only
No drugs or alcohol
All Youthab offices will be closed on April 7th and April 10th, 2023.
