WJS Canada works to keep adults with developmental disabilities, acquired brain injury, FASD, autism and mental health issues out of custody. Our residential and community based programs for criminally charged disabled adults bring long-lasting benefits to the individuals and the communities in which they live. At the same time they support the justice systems we are committed to protect and improve. We ensure safety and structure and teach socially acceptable behaviours.
Our custody programs for youth balance academic, social, citizenship and other life skills with recreation in a safe and culturally sensitive setting. We also deliver home and community intervention programs to youth who have been found guilty of a non custodian offence. Services balance academics, life-skills, recreation, structured cognitive behavioural interventions and a high degree of family and community involvement. The goal is to promote positive self-esteem and direct change toward acceptable social behaviour in a safe environment.
