Autumn HouseSupported independent living program for youth 16 to 18 years old
At Autumn House youth learn the skills to live independently such as grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and in general to be good tenants and neighbours.
Youth are also supported in their personal development and their pursuit of education and employment. Young parents are welcome in the program along with their children.
