We’re on the side of Youth
WJS Canada’s youth programs focus on youth who engage in high risk behaviour, youth and children with disabilities, home living support, residential child care and community access.
WJS home living programs include group and shared living, supported independent living and support and accommodations for First Nation, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) youth in Western and Northern Canada. Our services to at risk young females in care include emergency receiving and shared living in a live-in family setting.
Our community based programs address therapeutic youth work, support during the transition to adulthood, structured day supervision, in-home support, supervised access and transportation and community school programs. We provide opportunities for growth and development in safe, educational and nurturing environments that support and encourage youth in making favourable choices towards a sustainable, healthy and rewarding lifestyle.
Life skills and community based programs focus on empowering youth with disabilities to be independent, self reliant and confident.
