Foyer Notre Dame House

Emergency Shelter

Mandate

To provide safe and short-term housing, basic necessities, supportive counselling and a referral service which will encourage youth between 16-19 years of age to return home, remain in school and rebuild their lives.

Description

Foyer Notre Dame House is a fully bilingual program designed to assist homeless youth between the ages 16 to 19. Our goals are to assist each youth in achieving family reintegration, to undergo functional life skills training, to achieve vocational scholastic reintegration and to reach self-sufficiency and personal independence.

These goals are met by the young person's desire to change and their commitment to a comprehensive goal-oriented individualized program plan.
