community support & Aftercare
Once housing is secured, former clients can join the Community Support Program. The Community Support Program provides aftercare services to those clients who have found housing through Horizons for Youth’s services. We aim to help them successfully re-integrate into their respective communities. The Community Support Worker will visit youth in their homes and provide transportation, food packages, furniture bank referrals and landlords or roommate mediation if necessary. We also provide former clients with ongoing access to our in-shelter services, including free meals, laundry, and computer/Internet use. By providing these services we hope to equip youth with the necessities to live independently and settle into their new homes comfortably.
