The Centre is a youth home and treatment centre for those youth whose needs cannot be met in a regular foster home. It is not a detention centre.
Many youth come to the Centre in a time of crisis in their lives. Our goal is to help stabilize their situation and help them make a successful transition back to the community, a foster family, their family of origin or independent living. The Centre provides round the clock staffing and a structured and supportive environment for youth.
The Centre offers a residential setting in two separate houses, Brant and Merritt. Each has 5 bedrooms for girls on one level and 5 for boys on a separate level, a total capacity for 20 youth. Each home has a common dining and living area as well as office space for staff. The Centre serves the entire Niagara Region and while most youth will continue to attend their regular schools, there is also a classroom on site.
