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. This program is designed to help youth 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 mediation with landlords or roommates 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 resources and support they need to live independently.
